Brag Sheet

What is a Brag Sheet Image

A brag sheet is a document that outlines a student’s accomplishments. In many ways, a student brag sheet is similar to a student or scholarship resume, as it provides a solid overview of key achievements in a student’s life.

The main difference between a resume and a brag sheet is that the latter is designed with letters of recommendation writers in mind. The goal is to provide the writer with helpful details that they can include when creating the letter, making it easier for them to recall specifics about projects, awards, and other accomplishments.

What is a letter of recommendation?

A letter of recommendation is a document that highlights a person’s character traits and work ethic to aid them in their application process. The student may use it to help them enter an academic program or a career. Someone who has spent time with them in an academic or professional setting often writes the letter. It provides universities or companies a reference’s account of an applicant’s qualifications, including their skills, strengths, goals and accomplishments.
