Tanner Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 I am a third year undergraduate at a large US state university. However, it actually does not have any researchers in the scientific field I plan to pursue graduate work in. So, while I will have one or two strong LORs from professors at my university, I have not yet secured a letter from a researcher in my own field. Last semester I studied at a foreign institution which put me in contact with several researchers in my field. I feel it appropriate to ask for LORs from two researchers, one whose class I performed quite well in and another whom I met with to get advice and criticism on my work. I will not be applying to graduate programs until 2014, and it seems bad to wait to ask for these letters until I am putting together my applications in a year or more. Is it appropriate to email them, explaining my situation once again and asking if I could count on them for a letter of recommendation in a year and a half? I realize that these letters must be submitted by these people themselves, so what would the best course of action be to get these LORs to graduate programs in 2014? Thank you in advance for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
