I am preparing my application package for applying to a Master programme.
I have my academic recommendation letters from my professors, but they seem to be a bit long, according to some people.
The problem is that I like the RL the way they are and cant decide which sentences to delete in order to make them shorter! :S
Their length is a page and half including the university header, salutations, dates, addresses, Yours faithfully...etc!
Are they too long? Pfff... if so, it will be tough to make them shorter.!
Thanks for your help!
Short and sweet . . .
