Are two academic LORs enough?
« on: October 19, 2008, 02:08:45 PM »
I've already submitted two LOR from my English professors. Now, I know that many schools require 2, but accept up to four LOR.
I can't obtain anymore academic recommendations because I graduated college last year and took most classes in my last 2 years online, so professors don't know me personally. While in the college, I interned for an investment company and after graduation from January until May temporary worked for another firm.
I am sure that my internship supervisor and my boss from my last temporary job won't mind giving me recommendations. The problem is, after working with them closely I know that both of them are very busy people and not the best writers. If I ask them it's either going to be good recommendations but written in mediocre format or I will have to write them myself.
So, what do you think guys, should I go for it and try to obtain additional LORs from them or just stick with my two already received academic LORs?

I think you would be better off sticking with your two LORs
