mythologyking Posted July 21, 2015 Share Posted July 21, 2015 Hi all, I'm applying to grad schools (biomedical sciences) this Fall, and I'm sure on the 2 profs I'm asking to write my LoR (my current PI and my faculty adviser - who I've taken classes with and TAed for). For my third recommender, I'm thinking of asking a research scientist in a lab (who I worked closely with) I was previously in. Thing is, I'm not sure if this is a good idea. I've read comments about people saying LoR from postdocs might not be best, and optimally, you'd want professors/employers. I'm not sure if a research scientist would still be considered a postdoc, but I just wanted to ask if you guys think this would be okay/will it harm my application in any way? I do think that this third person would be the best candidate, especially cause he's another person I've done research for and I worked much more closely with him than I did with my former PI. Much appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
