Letter of Recommendation Workshop

On 10th August 19, Samcara, The Career Counseling Cell, organized LOR workshop for Senior School Teachers.

Since every year applications for overseas undergraduate programs are increasing from Sanskaar, it was Samcara’s responsibility to help our teachers get some detailed understanding into writing an effective LOR for the students.

Mr. Dipankar from the Mindler group conducted this session. He is a seasoned counselor and helps many students with their applications abroad and Liberal Applications in India.

He spoke about the importance of  Teacher’s and Counselor's LOR in the application process. Each teacher should ask the student to fill a brag sheet to understand the student’s strengths and achievements. He gave an insight as to how each teacher has to put in some research to understand the ethos of the college, to which the child is applying before they could write an effective LOR.

A discussion on how LOR can help students get scholarships was also addressed.
