Asking an elective professor?


Recommended Posts

I think relevancy really matters. If you're applying for science-type programs and are thinking about an English professor, I would say probably not. But if they can comment on your work in a way that adds something meaningful to your application and having a professor from a related field would help give a clearer picture on the kind of work you would do, maybe. But overall, I'm not really sure that a letter from someone you took one class with in a different field would be any stronger than a letter from someone you took one class with in your own field.
