  1. @Erin Thank you so much for your review. It means a lot. I won't push you but if you can review the improved version below, I'd be grateful. Thanks. S was my student at 'college' from the year 2011-2015. In the four years of my acquaintance with S, I had been a project guide, professor, and class coordinator. As a result, I am confident in my assessment that S can excel in a computer science master's course because of his technical capabilities, self-awareness, and growth ability. During our brainstorming sessions for his final year project on Captcha technology, I recognized S's strong analytical skills. He broke down the problem statements with rigorous questioning and experimented with logical solutions using flowcharts and pseudocode. Moreover, I was impressed by his straightforward solution to use a hardware random number generator (HRNG) to reduce the human effort involved. S, through his code, showed a strong understanding of the design patterns in ASP.NET. Additionally, he showed prudence in carefully handling exceptions in the software. I attribute this proficiency to the hard work in the lab sessions where he was in the top 10% of the ardent students in the practical classes. His hard work was evident throughout the department. Every faculty, including I, have found him fixated on solving the problems whatsoever, sometimes even forgetting lunch! S exhibited accurate self-awareness throughout this project by recognizing his extent of knowledge in the field of networks. The more he learned, the more he questioned. On top of this, he asked the right questions, which I have found especially hard to inculcate within my students. Consequently, his research was thorough, and his documentation indicated precision. Also, S focused on the project's direction, not losing himself in the minor details. S has shown exceptional leadership leading the college's music band into numerous victories. He is aspired to by his peers, particularly for his creative adaptability. For example, once his team had insufficient instrumentalists due to unforeseen circumstances. He used the vocalists to convert the entire performance into an acapella! I believe his penetrative questions originate from his creative brain. I am sure that S will be amongst my recommendations who excelled in their master's course and achieved remarkable careers. I'm proud to have contributed to his growth, and I'm confident you will be too if you admit him.
  2. I drafted this letter by myself for my teacher. I have low grades in my theory classes in college. Can you please assess the strength and authenticity of this LOR? --- I will never forget how S solved a security problem in a poll application using bar security as an analogy. It was then that I discovered S's mental capabilities. It felt invigorating to find students engineer solutions through non-technical analysis. His tools were a pen, a piece of paper, and penetrating questions. That triggered an interest within me in guiding him to cultivate such skills. I believe every student needs a hook to pull themselves into the skies. So, after he solved the issue, I directed him by giving him technical concepts designed as purposeful problems to solve. As I had calculated, he could grab on to the solution rapidly. I have encountered him being fixated on an issue several times, forgetting the world outside. Looking at his approach to solving each problem, I knew S had creative thought processes. As I expected, it was not long before he started challenging me with concepts he had discovered. I decided to guide him for his final year project on captcha technology. I directed him to choose the project through self-exploration by asking himself what problems frustrated him and how he would solve them had he been the developer. Again, it was not long before he returned to me with his answer, but he brought along with him the POC. I remember the project inspectors highly appreciating the topic because of its common-day problem-solving nature. S always had an eye for the business perspective. He could swiftly find a use for any particular concept. He always comes up with the right questions, which I find challenging to invoke within the students. I am confident that S has astounding capabilities to achieve anything he sets his mind on. I'm proud to have been one of the hooks for S, and I'm sure you will be too if you admit him.
  3. @Erin Thank you so much for reviewing. It means a lot. I meant 'implying'. Overlooked the error. I'll work on the rest of the comments. Once again, thank you so much. 🙂
  4. Discussing controversial topics with those with contrasting views is not useful because very few people change their minds when questioned about their core beliefs. Discussions about controversial topics are always useful because these discussions would help us grow as human beings by making our thought processes transparent and letting us come to terms with the world around us. Whether such a discussion changes people's minds since it questions their core beliefs is undergirded on factors such as the person putting forth the discussion and the quality of communication. On top of that, the statement mentions 'contrasting views' implicate that the person putting forth the discussion is assumed to be right, which is not always true. People attach their core beliefs to their identity. So, when they're questioned about their core beliefs, it is akin to threatening their identity. Hence, they defend themselves by refusing to change their mind. For example, the question "Does god exists?" will not be contemplated by several people because the very act of questioning goes against their beliefs. But, discussing such controversial topics requires structured communication and patience. Starting at the top level of the thought process and digging further, disentangling each thought process, and narrowing down the set of beliefs on top of those their conclusion is built upon will not provoke them and provide a smooth transition for them to question their core beliefs. Additionally, when strongly validated people put forth discussions of controversial topics, people accept those thought processes and work on them. Expecting people to change their minds immediately about a core belief does not make sense. Given time, people retrospect on their thought processes and start to think further. In conclusion, the way controversial topics are discussed and by whom these discussions are put forth affect the way people perceive these questions.
