Does it matter if I get a letter of recommendation from a professor in a lower division class that isn't my major?

I heard upper division courses are better to get recs from? Is this true?

it doesn't matter as long as the professor/TA can speak to your academic abilities

No. Better to get recommendations from people who can write 1.5 to 2 pages of detailed praise as to how excellent you are.

The lsdas wants 4 LOR's start with the most ideal canidates and then work your way down. If he is your 4th best option, then still go it, but only after the 3 better ones.
