    "perseverance" in adjective form

    I asked a teacher to describe me for my college apps, and he used a noun (perseverance). Anyone know the adjective form of that?

    I already checked wiki and dictionary.com

    Well, an adjective is a descriptive word, so maybe 'persevering'

    I think persistant might be a more 'forceful' alternative? A slightly different word. I'd still consider it - and in all honesty it tends to look better than my choice, though it may imply a 'pigheadedness' as opposed to a 'trial or effort'?
