Stupid question perhaps?

I recently asked a former supervisor to write a Letter of Recomendation for me. He told me he would be happy to write one, but also asked what exactly should he include. I thought this was a good question. What should the letter include besides the obvious, contrived same 'ol same 'ol?

Thanks.

Thanks

NP,

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, Wharton is definitely out for me. HAH! But I think what I'll do is see what multi-nationals have a strong presence in India and work my way backwards.

See ya,
Anosh
