Just when you thought you have seen it all, along comes an online letter of reference guide. This web site has several different samples of letter of references for college and graduate school admission as well as for personal references. It even has a fill in the blank reference generator form.
Like attorney George Lenard, I believe that this site does contain some helpful information. The only problem is that a reference letter that looks like 100 others is not very useful. I believe most admission officers and most personnel managers would look more favorably towards unique letters with a personal touch. Therefore, this service is of virtually no value.
