Hi guys! I am applying for the MAIR program of SAIS and god is it confusing! Would really love some tips/ help from fellow applicants/ current students especially regarding their essays and LORs. They only need 2 LORs and I am confused whether I should give both academic (one vouching for my policy skills and another psychology) or one professional as well. I have highlighted my psycho-political skills quite a bit and also tech so I am confused! help a girl out 😢
I am currently in the process of applying to PhD programs in environmental science/tropical ecology and conservation. I know–more or less– what schools I will be applying to. I also know who will be writing my letters of recommendation for me... but I do not know how they need to be sent to the schools I am applying for. I've heard about Interfolio, and I'm not sure what else it out there. I graduated from UCLA and UCLA offers a LoR service for alumni, but it is much more expensive than Interfolio. I've also heard about LoR writers mailing the letters to the schools themselves? I've tried to look into how you actually submit letters to grad school, and I still feel so confused. How do you actually send the letter to the school? I know it can be school specific, but any advice on the following would be much appreciated: - HOW do you send letters of rec to the schools you are applying to? - What services for sending LoR electronically is the best? (ex. Interfolio, through your alma mater?) This may seem like such a trivial question (and I'm sure I'l look back thinking it was a silly thing to ask), but I am just plain confused on how my LoRs need to get where they are supposed to go. Thanks!!
Hi, I am planning to apply to a MSc course for 2018 in the UK. I need 2 academic referees and I don't know who to contact for the 2nd letter. My counseling professor agreed to write the 1st letter and I am deciding upon 2 other professors for the 2nd one. 1. A professor who is very fluent in English (he is American and I go to uni in South Korea) with alot of experience writing recommendations. However I heard all his letters have similar context so if I apply to the same department a former graduate have applied to with his letter, the admission office will probably read the same thing with a different name. 2. A Korean professor whom I took all her classes throughout uni. She knows me well but her field of study is unrelated with the department I am applying for and she is not a fluent English speaker. I respect both professors but I can't decide who to email. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
