letter of recommendation
« on: January 14, 2009, 03:30:22 PM »
hey guys sorry if this was posted before, but

i was wondering if someone could fill me in on who could write LOR's?  Is it limited to prof's and work-related professionals only?

I've been considering asking for LOR from one of my TA's (who probably actually taught me more than my prof did honestly) but i don't know exactly the rules governing LOR's... can someone help me out? :D

Absolutely ask your TA if they have seen your work, know you, and will write you a good rec

Typically professors and employers (or other supervisors) write LORs.  However, if your TA is very familiar with your work and you can trust them to write a persuasive LOR, the TA might be a good option.  That being said, you might now want a LOR from just another college student without some other professional background.  You want to be sure that the LOR comes from someone who can write effectively and has the background or other proficiency necessary to be respected by the committee who reads the LOR.  Good luck!
