LOR from Abroad Professor
« on: August 24, 2008, 01:10:12 PM »
I studied abroad in Australia (UNSW) last semester and had a great relationship with one of my Professors there. If I were to have 1 academic from my home university, 1 from a former boss, and 1 academic from UNSW would that be sufficient? Should I get 2 from my home university and then add abroad and employment? Will a recommendation from an abroad professor have as much weight as one from my home university?

I don't know why they would weight it differently. It's an academic reference non? They might say that the person hasn't known your that long (only a semester) but perhaps the prof could mention in their rec that despite you only being at UNSW for a semester, you made the most of your time and developed a strong relationship immediately, etc. etc. Get the people who know you the best and can speak to your abilities the best, if that's an abroad prof. get them!
