Jen3225 Posted November 4, 2009 Share Posted November 4, 2009 Hi! I'm wondering how people generally handle letter of recommendation. Do the recommenders sent them directly to the school? I know for medical school admissions there are websites that the letters are uploaded to and then they can be distributed to schools. Additionally, I graduated in 2007, so I have been out of school for a few years. I will have my current functional manager and a professor that I did research for write letters. I'm not too sure who I can have as a third one. I have a professor that I had a few different classes with, so he would be a bit more familiar with my work, but there is no guarantee that he remembers me at this point. Or I could have a project manager from work that I have worked with frequently over the past few years. It is more current, but he obviously does not know my academic abilities. Are academic references better than industry ones if the school does not specify? Does anyone have experience asking current managers for LoR? It's a bit awkward since applications are due in January but I wouldn't want to leave my job until August. Thanks! Jen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
