SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey everyone, I am an undergraduate student pursuing my degree in Health Management online through Northeastern University. I would like to one day get my MPH in Health Policy and Management, but since I'm taking my classes online I'm confused about what I'll do about my letters of recommendation. I plan to participate in a summer research opportunity where I will work with a professor at Rutgers University, and I also will pursue other relevant internships, but I think any letters from my NU professors will be weak. How important are academic vs. professional letters for this type of degree program? I'll appreciate any feedback at all. Thanks so much. If it helps, I'm a diligent student with a >3.7 gpa and I plan to do my best in my coursework and in my professional experiences.
