Waffle Posted October 6, 2011 Share Posted October 6, 2011 Hi, Let me explain my situation. I'm planning to candidate for a master in International Affairs with a focus on investment and finance. I'm currently in my last year of undergraduate pursuing a dual bachelor in Political Science and Economics & Business administration. Most programs ask for 3 letter of recommendation; for the moment I have one professional LOR and probably a second from a political sociology teacher. However, I'm confronted with a dilemna for the third LOR. Here are my options: - a philosophy teacher with whom I've had 2 courses (one lecture and one seminar); he knows me well and graded several of my papers so I think it could result in a strong LOR - a political science teacher with whom I've had 1 course (a lecture); I tried to partcipate as much as possible and I think a LOR from him would not be weak but it would definitely be less personal and fitted than one from the philosophy teacher. I must thus choose between a strong LOR from a teacher who's completely outside of the discipline I'm aiming for, and a less strong and personal LOR from a LOR within my discipline. So what's your take: which one should I prefer? Thank you in advance and good luck to all of you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
