BerenErchamion Posted December 29, 2013 Share Posted December 29, 2013 I just completed my first term of study in my Ph.D. program. I'm in the process of preparing to apply for a summer language program (I'm a bit behind on language requirements because I didn't develop an interest in my field until late in my undergrad career, and at any rate my undergrad institution did not offer any relevant languages--and the need to work summers in order to be financially sound as an undergrad precluded any summer language work then). The program itself does not require LORs, but FLAS does. As a relatively new graduate student, I'm kind of at a loss to as to who I should be asking for letters. I'm taking a language class right now (which I absolutely excelled in) and will probably ask my professor for that class for a letter. My adviser hasn't actually seen my work (he didn't teach any graduate classes this past term), though he understands my research interests pretty well and can certainly write a letter that speaks to those. For the third letter, however, I'm wondering if, at this early stage, I'd be better served by asking one of my professors from one of my other classes (which I did well enough in, certainly, but not absolutely stellar) or my undergraduate language professor. I plan to discuss this with my adviser when I return next week, but I was hoping for other input and more recent experiences as well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
