Is two humanities LORS bad for a STEM major?
I am an incoming senior and am deciding which teachers I should ask to write my recommendation letters. I am not entirely sure what my major will be yet, but there is a possibility that I might go for STEM (environmental or food science would be STEM but other majors include economics and env. studies). My strongest recommendations, I believe, would come from my English and my Foreign Language teacher. The former can testify to my strong writing ability, work ethic, and critical thinking skills. The latter also thinks highly of me as I am the vice president of our language honors society and believes that I am highly distinguished from my peers - even the president. My science teacher would likely have a good recommendation as well but I am not so sure it would have the same impact as the other two. So I suppose the question is: would it be better to have two outstanding recommendations from humanities teachers or should I have one from a STEM teacher?5 replies
