Name of Applicant
I authorize the release of a candid evaluation to assist in the admission selection, and should I enroll, to be available for use by administrators or
faculty in evaluating my application for employment or my candidacy for an honor award. I understand that the material will be kept confidential both
from me and the public, and I waive any right of access that I might have by law. I further understand that the University of Virginia School of Law
does not require me to execute this waiver and is willing to review my application without such a waiver.

To Those Asked to Submit Recommendations:
Recommendations should be frank and detailed. Brief letters in general terms are of little value to the Graduate Committee. The
letters should state the extent of the writer’s acquaintance with the applicant and the writer’s opinion of the applicant’s aptitude for
graduate study in law. Any specific knowledge concerning the applicant’s intellectual ability, character and personality should be
discussed. It is particularly helpful, when possible, for the writer to compare the applicant with promising contemporaries.
Provided this applicant has signed the above waiver, you may be assured that your letter will be kept confidential from both the applicant and the public. If the applicant has chosen not to waive his or her rights under recent legislation, please be advised that following enrollment as a student at this Law School, he or she may, on request, have access to your letter.
Use university or business letterhead and envelopes for your recommendation. If you are unable to do so, please explain why.
Mail the recommendation and this form to the applicant. Please seal and sign the back flap of your envelope; it will be submitted to
the Law School unopened by the candidate.
No action can be taken on this student’s application until this form is returned.
