So here is my dilemma. I'm going to be senior. I've done reasonably well in my classes but am not a big one for talking in class. Its not that I'm not prepared or don't know what's going on, its just that unlike many of my other classmates, i don't talk during class to hear the sound of my own voice or try to impress the professor with my many travels of the world. I only talk/answer questions on occasion, but I'd like to think that when I do they're insightful.
Anyways, because of my general quietness, I haven't made a huge impression on many of my profs, and only really feel comfortable asking one and I know I need at least 2 academic LORs. Should I just ask for LORs from profs that taught courses I did well in in the past and hope for the best? Or should I wait for my fall classes and really try and make a good impression in the first month or so and then ask them to write a LOR in Oct/Nov?
Any advice at all would be helpful...thanks!!
