Recommendations / How Many Recs?
« on: August 27, 2007, 11:25:13 PM »
I have three recommendations already: one from my academic advisor for four years who later worked with me on my thesis, a professor in a different discipline, and my boss at the writing center who I also had for a class. 

I could get another one from one of my professors I had when I studied abroad in Amsterdam.  We're still in touch and she's said she'd do it.  There are several reason I was thinking I'd take her up on it. I could show that I was academically serious when I was in Amsterdam--a city with a stigma.  I could show how I interact with people from other cultures and maybe make up for a lack of diversity in other areas.  And lastly, she could talk about this cool project I did and probably won't get a chance to talk about. 

But--it might slow down my application because of the abroad factor.  And I've heard that too many recommendations that say the same thing (how am I to know they won't?) can annoy the adcomms or work against you. 

Should I go for four?
