Recommendations / "doesn't do letters of rec anymore"
« on: August 14, 2008, 12:51:42 PM »
i just heard back from one of my potentional recommenders (who has written be a LOR for other stuff before) and she said, "i do not teach at the university anymore and therefore don't do letters of recommendation.  but if you are ever in town, you have a place to stay!"  clearly, we had a close relationship and her letter would really help me!  i'm very disappointed.

do any of you think i should try to convince her somehow?  is there anything i could say that might change her mind, or should i just drop it?  thing is, i've been out of school a while and she was one of two academic recommenders i had in mind.  i also have a letter from an attorney i work closely with in my job.  any advice is appreciated.

Personal Statement / why?
« on: July 15, 2008, 04:46:18 PM »
why would you let a bunch of strangers on the internet read and critique your personal statement?  a). for all you know these people are a bunch of idiots who are going to give very poor advice b). for all you know these people are just reading a bunch of statements in order to assess the "competition" and write theirs accordingly.

just sayin.
