Is it OK to have an adjunct professor to write a rec?

Postby frazzz » Mon Sep 16, 2013 2:28 pm

I felt like I did pretty well in that class, and it's probably the only class whose professor could talk a lot about my reading and writing because I am an economics major. However, the professor is not tenured but an adjunct professor. Is this going to have a negative effect?

One of my LORs was written by a TA PhD candidate. It doesn't matter who writes your LOR as long as they know your work.

No negative effect whatsoever.
