sh33n Posted October 22, 2020 Share Posted October 22, 2020 Finance undergrad from a small U.S Private school. 3.5 GPA. GRE: Quant: 165 Verbal: 163. My graduate interests are inter-disciplinary (economics, politics and public policy). Political Economy and more applied economics. Regardless of the program I have noticed a glaring hole in my profile. My potential letters of recommendations. My undergrad courses are primarily in finance (derivatives, international finance, investments, etc.) I also took (intro micro and macro, and stats and calc I) I did well in all my courses but I can think of one professor I did exceptionally well with, the whole course was essentially a semester long project doing investment research for our universities endowment fund. The professor/director explicitly told me I was the best he's seen. My concern is that the recommendation would not be very pertinent to the interests I mentioned above. Unless programs are looking for potential regardless of it is DIRECTLY related to the program I am seeking admissions to? Aside from that, I do plan to take some courses in economics while I work-full time to bolster my transcript. Is it reasonable to expect to try getting a LOR from a professor when the course is 100% online? I am trying to address what I believe is my biggest weakness so any additional suggestions would be great. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
