  1. Hello all! So I'm going to be applying to some Biostatistics MS programs in the Fall and am not sure exactly who I should ask to write my recommendation letters. Right now, my plan is to ask my major advisor (I took his biostatistics class and TA-ed for it in a subsequent semester), my psychology research lab professor (I've been working in her lab for 4 years), and my choir director (at my university choir is a 1-credit class. I've been a part of the choir for 4 years and was our fundraising chair, vice president, and president consecutively in the latter 3 years.). I've chosen these professo
  2. This has been such a painful and tedious process and just when I think I'm done, I'm not. I am applying to both Master's and PhD programs. I had three recommenders lined up who all know me very well. academically and personally. Two of the three got their letters in on time. One of them didn't and wasn't responding to emails over the winter break. When I finally got in touch with her, she said she would do them "that night." It obviously didn't happen. Since then, she has kept saying on multiple occasions that she was going to submit the letters that day. Here I am, a month after one of the de
  3. Hi everyone, I’m having a hard time getting letter of references. I’d like to know if it’s possible I can use a field evaluation (undergrad internship evaluation) substituted for a letter of recommendation? Would the graduate admissions still consider this as a letter of references? Thanks.

  5. I'm applying to at least two, potentially more Clinical Psychology programs through PSYCAS. Does anyone know if, when I request my references through PSYCAS, they will have to submit one letter that will be then sent to each program, or if they will have to submit a letter per each school applied to? Asking because it will potentially impact how many schools I apply to. I don't particularly want to burden my references with having to go through 15 different reference letter links through PSYCAS if I decide to be ambitious and apply to that many - but if they only need to submit one, the
  6. Hi everone (it's my first post). I am trying to apply for a PhD position, but unfortuantely I have only 2 reference letters. (I am an international students and this whole reference letter thing is not common in my country) I was hoping it would not have been a big problem, but it turns out it is a HUGE problem and every university requires at least 3 letters. Since application deadlines are (ususally) on the 15th of Dec, it also seems like it is way too late to look for any other possible source of reference letters. So do you know any US university with a good Computer Science PhD progr
  7. The background is that I was a good undergraduate student. I graduated from university with a top degree classification and several of the Faculty exam prizes and scholarships. The trouble started when I began a Masters degree at the same university. The course didn't suit my interests and I fell out with my main tutor, who took my bad performance very personally. I know that she contacted all three of my former referees and made sure to involve them. For full disclosure I also left the Masters course with unpaid rent owed to my college and threatened to draw publicity to the case if they purs
  8. I need 2 academic references for my dream Ivy League, however, I have all but entirely lost my connections with my professors since graduating in 2010. I do have a positive relationship with my University Provost and President, but having never completed a thesis or doing research, my references are limited. During my final semester my mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness that plunged me into a deep depression - as well as my GPA to a 2.96. I'm now a senior advisor to the US Senate - so I've done well professionally - but that won't do much for references however. I'm struggling wit
  9. I'm sorry if this question has already been asked before since it seems like a common question but I couldn't find a post on it. I am planning on applying to graduate school soon. Most of the programs I'm planning on applying to require 2-3 academic references, which I have BUT I plan to apply to multiple schools that I think I have a chance of being competitive in (10-15 schools at least). The problem I'm running into is that if I'm applying to this many schools I don't want to be harassing my past professors for 15+ references, as I'm sure they have better things to do than write 15+ diff
  10. After multiple e-mails, calls, and a verbal confirmation that she had sent in my reference, I just saw on an application portal that one of my referees actually did not send it in. I've e-mailed both her and the school to ask if it is still possible for it to be considered, but is there really any hope of that happening at this point? It is my top choice and even though she has a reputation for being down to the wire, I never expected her to put me in this situation. Honestly just so hurt and worried right now. Is there anything more I can do besides e-mailing and calling on Monday? Also
  11. Dear all, I have completed a Bachelor's in History and now I'm doing an internship with an NGO in India that focusses on female empowerment. I want to study Conflict Management. During 2015-2016, I have studied almost exclusively conflict management courses both in the Netherlands and the UK. Now I'm applying to a wide range of universities to spread my chances. A number of them require academic letters of recommendation. The problem is that I don't have that many people who can act as referees. A lot of my former professors taught History courses and I haven't seen them in a long while n
