Bad Idea about Letter of Recommendation?

Postby Ioannis » Tue Oct 16, 2012 8:43 am

I believe I have one good recommendation from my professor I had 3 classes with and got all As in.
It is suggested you get two academic LORs. I don't know how I'll get another professor to give me a confidence, solid recommendation. I've gotten As in other classes, yes, but no close relationships except for one this semester.

The problem with the class I could potentially get a recommendation from is from a leadership skils/public speaking course that has nothing to do with my major. Its a 300 level course though.
But I've gotten to know the professor rather well... through the internet. It's an online course.
It's not a joke of a class though at all, she really makes you work for it. for example, my last speech I thought I absolutely killed. I got a B+ for small, but completely valid, critics. I can only imagine how other students done.


Should I just take one recommendation from the original professor and get 2-3 LORs from work experience?

If you've just finished school, might as well go with the other professor. How would they know it was through an online course?

Okay, then don't. Sounds like you've made up your mind.

Just because it's online doesn't mean you couldn't have formed a close relationship. I say go for it.
