SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I was never able to get really close with any of my professors. Some of them may recognize me from just being in class and asking questions but I don't think this is enough of a personal connection. I was able to connect very well with my speech professor, however I know that many schools are looking for science professors for rec letters. Would it be beneficial to have her write a letter upon my public speaking skills and ability to work with others? I'm fairly confident she would be able to write a glowing letter for me because she absolutely loved everything I did in her class. I feel like this would be a great supplement to an adequate normal letter form a science teacher. Thoughts?
