that seems like an odd thing to put in an LOR, arent profs supposed to be a little smarter then this?


one of my professors described me as quiet by nature in his recommendation.. Is this the kiss of death..

Here is how it is used:

Quiet by nature, Darren Rowles has the maturity, internal discipline and academic abilities to excel as a law student. 

The remainder of the recommendation is great, but those three words scare me.. He told me to review what he wrote to see if "he covered all the bases".. should I mention that I dont like the quiet by nature shiznit..

Maybe you should ask him to change the word "quiet" to "naughty."

Fixed.

See if you can get him to drop some lyrics from "Hip Hop Hooray" in the recommendation, too.
