As a professor at State University, you have been asked to write a letter of recommendation for one of your advisees who is applying for an internship. The student is now a senior and you have known her since she was a freshman. She has taken two courses from you, and she's active in a club for which you are the faculty advisor. Which of the following would be the BEST way to begin the letter?
a. Give an overview of the student's academic achievements.
b. List specific details that you remember about the work she produced in each of the classes she took with you.
c. Make it clear that you're recommending the student for the internship and then show how well and how long you've known her.
d. Give specific reasons that she would do well in this particular internship.
