I’m applying early decision to Dartmouth need help regarding the peer recommendation. I have a friend with good writing skills willing to write it for me, the only problem is that neither of us know what a recommendation letter actually looks like.
How should it be opened? Would it be like: “I am XYZ, a friend of ABC and am writing this to recommend ABC to Dartmouth College”? How should my friend introduce himself in the letter?
How formal should the language be? What are we actually supposed to write about? How long should the letter be?
Any guidance is appreciated.
