To whom it may concern:
I think extremely highly of Hongbin Wu, and therefore it is my great pleasur
e to write a letter of recommendation on his behalf, for entrance into your
I have known Hongbin for more than one and a half years. I hired him to work
for me as a Research Analyst at SRR in July of 1996. SRR is a full-service
marketing research firm whose clients are primarily large radio stations and
other music oriented media companies such as Capital Records, and MTV Netwo
rks. My roles at SRR include manager of new product development (research pr
oducts and the software to analyze the results), and internal research consu
ltant (sampling methodology and multivariate statistical analysis). In addit
ion, as a member of the management team at SRR, I am charged with constantly
working to find more efficient, cost-effective means of gathering responden
t level data and producing our research products. Since joining SRR as a Sen
ior Research Analyst, and more recently as Manager of Research and Developme
nt, Hongbin has been a major weapon in my arsenal of tools for accomplishing
Hongbin is a creative and original thinker. He has native intelligence, grea
t curiosity about people and ideas, and plenty of common sense that he has a
pplied to solving many problems at SRR. In addition, he has demonstrated exc
ellent powers of observation, and an ability to communicate and suggest chan
ge in effective but non-threatening ways. To illustrate…
Early on, Hongbin was assigned to an important research project as a fill-in
Project Manager. In this role he was responsible for the technical aspects
of creating a computer-based survey questionnaire (from one given to him by
our client services department), monitoring the telephone data collection pr
ocess, and completing the data processing and analysis of the survey results
From the beginning of this assignment, Hongbin began to re-define our expect
ations of a good project manager. He started by participating in discussions
with the client and suggesting and implementing several changes to the scri
pt that shortened its length and clarified the instructions to respondents.
Without prompting or precedence he spent several days working odd hours, obs
erving and monitoring interviewers and supervisors as they began to field th
is 2000 person study. Within a few days he had shortened and clarified the s
cript even more - removing redundant questions, collapsing multiple question
s into one, and improving the flow from question to question and screen-to-s
creen - all to the great praise of both interviewers and the director of our
phone center. He had also observed something about a particular aspect of t
he interviewing process that was common to all surveys at SRR. He wrote a me
mo to several managers outlining his proposed change in methodology that cle
arly demonstrated the value of his idea: an annual cost reduction of close t
o $50,000. At the end of the project, he wrote a several page critique of ou
r interviewing and supervisory staff. He described the characteristics and s
kills employed by the best interviewers he'd observed and made suggestions f
or how these skills could be taught to the entire staff. His recommendations
were well received and soon implemented by the very manager whose staff was
being critiqued; such was the value of his contribution and the skill and s
ensitivity with which he presented his ideas.
In processing the survey results, Hongbin also quickly learned to use severa
l advanced statistical techniques including Cluster Analysis and Discriminan
t Analysis with which he had only a passing knowledge prior to the project.
Hongbin has also demonstrated his technical and analytical abilities in help
ing create a new model for bidding on new business, and in spearheading the
development of tool that used a Maximum Likelihood algorithm for ascribing m
issing respondent data. Recently, Hongbin helped me identify the most desira
ble qualifications and background of computer programming candidates, and he
assisted me in the recruiting and mentoring of two Chinese student interns
to this position. They have both made significant contributions in only a fe
w months of employment.
Hongbin is not a native English speaker or writer, and thus, he has had to w
ork very hard to clearly communicate his ideas. I have seen him grow in this
area tremendously over the last one and half years. His attentive listening
and great enthusiasm has helped him overcome any language limitations. He i
s both self-confident and self-deprecating, and has a great sense of humor t
hat has helped him form strong relationships with subordinates, peers, and m
embers of our management team. Managers in other departments frequently seek
his advice, and his name is always at the top of the list when choosing tea
m members to spearhead important company initiatives.
In all of these areas, Hongbin Wu has gone beyond expectations, and has out-
shined all others in his peer-group at SRR. His efforts were recently reward
ed with a promotion to the position of Manager of Research & Development.
Hongbin is very likeable and ambitious person. I have no doubt that he will
be a serious and enthusiastic student, and someday a quite successful senior
level manager or entrepreneur that you would be proud to call an alumni.
Dear Sir or Madam:
I gladly recommend my student Mr. Yi to you for his
application to your graduate school program.
Mr. Yi enrolled in my courses of "Digital Control System" and
"Optimization Theory" during his senior year. In the former, he
got a good score of 86/100 and ranked within top 5% of the class.
In the latter which was opened for graduate students, he was one
of the only three undergraduates who took this course. Throught
the period of instruction, I found him an inquistive and attentive
person. He always concentrated on my lectures and absorb knowledge
profoundly. Although some of the assignments were somewhat
difficult to the average students, he could solved them completely
and correctly owing to his logical and analytical thinking and the
clear conception to the theory. He also impressed me in the final
project - developing a program to resolve the free-variable optimal
problem. He thought deeply and did it skillfully, so the program
could work very well even for the special cases (like cycling...)
but still economically and easy to read. So I gave him the good
score and was better than many graduate students.
Besides, He also took a cluster of courses in Control and Systems
Theory in his junior and senior years and always got good scores.
Upon my observation, Mr. Yi has been fully prepared to undertake
a Master in your institute in the control and system fields. I am
confident that with the ingenious learning ability and diligent
attitude that he has shown in the courses, he will be able to
perform outstandingly even in a highly vigorous program. I have no
hesitation in recommending him and hope that you will consider his
At the request of linhujushi， an undergraduate student from the Department
of Mechanics, I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation in support
of his application for admission and financial aid for his study in your De
Mr.linhujushi has a great interest in Fluid Mechanics. Though I did not offe
r lectures to undergraduate students, or had any contact with them, I could
still see his strong desire to accompany my research group, an active group
int the study of turbulence and two-phase flow in China. He first contacted
me when he was a junior, asked my instructions for his further study and ask
ed me if he could take part in my group. Because my group only chose graduat
e students as research assistants, I just told him how he could improve his
study in this discipline, and asked him to pursue his diploma under my group
after his graduation.
However, Mr.linhujushi has a great goal. His career goal is to study more pr
actical knowledge and do something to serve his hometown. He told me that th
e Education System of China was different from that of U.S.A, and experience
of study under the two different systems would benefit him from the advanta
ges of each individual one. "What's more, research could be done under the i
nstruction of renowned faculty and be helped by state-of-the-art facilities.
Needless to say, it would be more convenient if I study in such countries a
s the United States." I agreed with him. And I can see he is making every ef
fort to improve his study in both Mechanics and English during his undergrad
In my opinion, the study of Mechanics can be quite monotonous and time consu
ming, therefore interest is the best teacher if one would like to carry on.
Mr.linhujushi is completely enchanted by the academic world, from the fundam
ental theories to their applications. His interest would no doubt be the bes
t reason for his future success in Fluid Mechanics and be the best reason fo
r me to recommend him to your program. I would like to recommend his without
reservation for his admission and financial support to you program. I hope,
under your careful instructions, he would reach his summit in his study; an
d I hope, with your long-rang views, he would develop something practical fo
r the future, and could serve his hometown.
Further information would be provided upon request.
It's my pleasure to recommend Mr.linhujushi for his application to the gradu
ate studies in your program.
I got to know him personally when he was taking the course--computational fl
uid dynamics, a course I taught, concerning the quantitative computation of
flow fields. The student hardly took any note on his text book, however, he
was quite attentive to my lecture. Through communication with him, I knew he
had a clear view on what I taught, and his questions were thought-provoking
. In order to span his comprehensin in CFD, he borrowed the book Numerical G
rid Generation as a reference. At the end of the semester, with no surprise,
he got a 94, a next to the second score in his final.
Besides his intelligence exhibited in his course work, Mr.linhujushi was als
o a person who was good at arranging time. He took the Toefl test during the
semester. I knew the test should be time consuming. However, he put all the
things in tough turn, and did not miss any of my class! And he still got hi
gh score in the prequisite test. This ability should benefit him much if he
would study abroad, since he will be able to deal with them freely when he i
s confronted with difficulties.
To my knowledge, Mr.linhujushi is not only strong in academics, mature in pe
rsonal life, but also active in sports and social activities. He is a good d
efender in the soccer team of the Department and plays in the MEE college cu
p for consecutive two years. He also participates in the West Lake Expo, and
works as volunteer interpreter. The activity enhances both his oral English
and his communicating skills.
in my opinion, Mr.linhujushi is those students who would be labeled as excel
lent, I feel very delighted when he told me he would like to pursue his adva
nced studies in your honored program and I am confident that he will contrib
ute greatly to it. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need more info
