Letters of Reference- All three academic?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Quick question, Im have three professors that are willing to write me letters of reference and i am sure they will be great. My question is, will it look bad if all three of my references are professors and I dont have any references from my internship? I could ask my supervisor from my past internship, but im not sure if hers would be as strong.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks again. One more quick question. When I asked my prof if she would write me a letter of rec she said "I think your values will be challenged, but you will make a good social worker." Do you think I should find a new prof? Something about that just kind of irked me.

That's tough. Do you know what she meant by that? Did she mean it in a negative way? (I can't imagine what that would mean, but I don't know a whole lot about social work.) Do you have someone else you can ask who knows you as well? And also keep in mind whether she will find out from other recommenders that you asked her and then didn't use her as a recommender. That has the potential to cause problems.

I think, if you think her recommendation will be good, then just go with it, since she's already said yes. You'll save yourself the headache of asking someone else and worrying about her being upset. I understand where you're coming from, but I think in the grand scheme of things if her letter is good then you get it and then you don't have to deal with her again and it will be less stressful than starting over with someone else.
