I just got one of my letters of reference for admission to the graduate program - I absolutely adore this man. On the recommendation form he selected superior in all of the categories and wrote the nicest letter I have ever seen. He gave me a copy to keep as he had to put it in an envelope and sign across the seal.
My favorite part was: "As an undergraduate she was an extraordinarily good citizen of the English Department and a valuable goodwill ambassador for it."
I love it when people sing my praises, it doesn't happen often believe me. Okay, I am done gushing, it's back to work for me!
