I'm looking to transfer next fall and need to figure out a professor to write me a LOR. So I'm in a bit of a situation with that where I have options but I'm not sure which of them are legitamte options and which one I should take.
The professor who knows me the best, has seen me work hard, and who's class I've done the best in is my Chinese teacher. Problem is she's not really a professor she's a graduate student (who's taught multiple classes over the past couple of years). Is it acceptable for her to write me a recommendation?
My next best option would be my Calc 2 professor since I also sit in the front row of his class and do extremely well in the class. Problem is he is Korean and speaks almost no English so I think he's out of the question.
My two other options are both professors for 300 person classes and neither of them know me. I've wanted to go to their office hours but I can't think of an excuse to. I'm doing fine in both of their classes and understand all of the material with no problems whatsoever. Even if I did go I don't know how willing they would be to get to know me rather than just answer my questions.
My last option which again I don't know if it's acceptable or not is my Freshman Seminar professor. She's the head of the finance department at our university and is extremely nice. The Seminar is on Corporate Management but we don't really do anything we just chat and write about articles we read online. While she would probably be more than willing to write me a rec would it be acceptable since it's not really a "class"?
For what it's worth I'm trying to transfer from The University of Georgia to Emory University and I'm a dual major in Business Economics and Math (Also going to cram a minor in Chinese if that's possible). Any help is appreciated, thanks!
