I am in the last year of my undergraduate studies before I apply to graduate school. I have some questions and I am also in need of some advice.
I know one professor very well and I plan on asking him for a recommendation letter. I also plan on doing research with him next summer. But I need two more and I am not quite close with any other faculty members.
- Are letters from professors weighted more heavily than letters from postdocs?
- Is one class enough to get to know a professor/instructor well? Would two classes be enough?
- What if I don't take a class with a professor but I do a reading course? Is a single term of a reading course good enough for a professor to know me?
