Rising Posted October 8, 2015 Share Posted October 8, 2015 Hello everyone!I am planning on applying for MA in Eastern European and Russian Studies in Harvard, Yale, Stanford an Oxford (by the way, looking for people who have applied/are planning to apply for any of these programs). My GPA is not that great, so I am trying to compensate with the rest of the application. I would like to ask whether I am allowed to submit a LOR from a tutor? She knows me very well, she taught me several relevant classes and she has PhD.I also have hard time deciding who to ask for LOR. I will just briefly mention my options and I would be very grateful, if anyone could give any feedback. 1. Eastern European and Russian Politics professor - did well in his class and expect a strong LOR. He is also fairly known in this field.2. My tutor as I already mentioned above. She knows me and I expect a strong LOR from her.3. Russian language teacher at university. I expect a super strong LOR from her but there are 2 problems here: She has no PhD and she left university to take a break, so no uni e-mail address.4. Soviet History professor - did well in his class and he is well-known in the field. However, I took his class in my first year and I am sure that he doesn't remember me. Thus, I don't know what to expect.5. Migration Policy professor - did really well in her class and expect a strong LOR. However, her subject had very little to do with my region of interest. Nevertheless, I wrote all my papers on regional topics, so I guess she could mention that in the LOR? Would it work?6. International Security professor - did well in his class and expect a strong LOR. However, his subject again had very little to do with my region of interest but I would like to conduct research on regional security during my MA. I am stuck and would really appreciate any feedback I can get.Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
