Tried doing a search and didn't see much. Looking at starting my ALS program either this fall or winter, and I need letters of recommendation. Thankfully, I have more than enough colleagues/superiors/instructors willing to vouch for me - the problem is that 90% of them say "I'd love to - why don't you write something up and I'll look it over and sign it?". (Incidentally, I got the same responses from a completely different set of colleagues when I was looking into grad school, too) Anyone here involved in education have any pointers on what makes a solid Recommendation Letter? I realize that there's no need for me to agonize over this - the paramedic program at this school is actually in danger of being canceled this term due to lack of interest - but I am incapable of just phoning it in. Even if I don't need them to get admission, I need to have decent letters for my own vindication. Thanks!
