My question is fairly straightforward. In terms of my letters of recommendation having maximum impact, should I include one from my professional history and one from academic? I am confident I can meet with a past professor or two and get one to write a good letter (I think I was a memorable student in these classes... but it WAS 4 or more years ago).
I also know I can get one or more excellent LOR from professional sources.
What are your experiences with a significant time (4-5 yrs) post-grad on academic LOR?
Thanks in advance!
