Whom should you ask for a letter of recommendation for your Master’s application?

Any university you are applying to would ask for at least three LORs. Thus, you have to pick three persons who can do this job perfectly. The format and content of a LOR is as crucial as the recommender- the person who will be recommending your profile to for admission. The choice of the recommender is solely on you. Preferably, the Assistant Professors () or Project Managers and , with whom you share a good rapport, and have worked closely, should write you a LOR. If you have work experience or done an internship, then you can ask for LOR from your manager or team lead/project lead. If you are going for studies directly after bachelors, then you can get all three LORs from the college faculty (Professors and HoD). Read  to know more about it.

What is the difference between a letter of recommendation and a reference letter?

A letter of recommendation (LOR) is specific to academic requirements. Generally, it is required by the universities along with your application form when you make your final submission to the university. A letter of recommendation discusses your attributes, accomplishments, and describes your holistic personality. It is directly sent to the university or sometimes the university sends a link directly to the recommender’s email through which they have to submit their LOR. On the other hand, a Reference Letter is usually used for professional purposes when you join a new company. You can use one reference from one recommender and keep it with yourself. It is more official, hence, only professional accomplishments and performance is discussed, while a LOR is more personal and discusses the personality of an applicant as a whole.

Tips for Indian students

One of the most important things to remember is that the Admission Committee comes across thousands of applications and thousands of documents. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while drafting your LOR:

  • They can easily recognize if the LOR was plagiarized or written by the same person. Thus, it is advisable not to copy any content from the web/internet.
  • Even if you are writing the LORs yourself, make sure the qualities and instances are genuine and differ for each LOR, as each recommender will have different experiences and associations with you.
  • The content should differ as well as the style without deviating from the format.
  • Apart from this, here are a few ‘don’ts’ to keep in mind if you are writing the LORs yourself: .

Depends on how competitive the university is and the admissions team. If you have good profile overall , cleared the backlogs , have a decent percentile you should worry too much about the backlogs. Rather focus on building your profile. Prepare for the GMAT as well and gain some solid work experience, demonstrate leadership and managerial skills. Get involve in extracurricular activities too. 2-5 years of work experience is ideal. This is the average years of experience typical MBA applicants have.

Hi Nivanshi, depends on the number of backlogs you had, your subsequent improvement, overall profile etc. Upto 5 backlogs could be accepted. Higher number of backlogs will indicate a more competitive and challenging admission.
