I'm currently undertaking second semester in MA program. As an international student, I am unhappy with living here in this country, so I'm considering to transfer to another university in the US but a similar MA program.
In this case I need to take GRE which wasn't required in order to get in the current university, and hopefully meet the minimum requirements. In this case can I make an excuse about unhappiness when asking for a letter of recommendation (LOR) from my supervisor?
Well then I need at least three LORs, but I have no idea where to ask for. I do have been volunteering at an organization for almost over 100 hours now, but is unpaid work okay to be considered as a strong LOR?
