    Would a Chem. lab professor be a good person to ask for a letter of rec? Also, would it be appropriate for the TA to contribute to the letter? Thank you! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I'm a TA and I'm writing a LOR for a person who's applying in 2003. The profesor is endorsing it though.

    I would get the professor to co-sign the letter. Some schools (Albert Einstein comes to mind) won't accept letters from TA's.

I felt like having a ta do it would give them a lor from a person I had more interactions with and it would make the letter sound more positive. Just my opinion, though.
