That's so weird!! He had enough time to keep on top of what you were doing, but not enough to write you a letter? You even tutored for his class!Originally posted by UCLAMAN
Yes, I have. Several times by the same professor actually. I even set the curve in his physics class. He knew me from office hours intially. He knew me better after I started tutoring physics for his class. He would just say that he didn't think that he'd be able to write me one and that perhaps I should find another prof. Never figured out why he wouldn't write me one. He's a nice guy and I figure he was just always busy with his research. Didn't take it personal. He actually planned my itinerary to Vandy last year when I interviewed there(he's a travel buff) and always wanted to be kept abreast of my progress despite not writing an LOR for me.
He definitely wasn't trying to be mean. If he's not a good writer...hmmm...perhaps. He does teach physics, not to stereotype. But he has to be able at least to write a letter? How else would he become a professor? Maybe he just doesn't write for anyone, for whatever reason.Originally posted by UCLAMAN
He obviously wasn't trying to be mean or anything. Maybe he's not a good writer? Perhaps I should've asked him if thats just his general policy with all students. I've never heard of other students getting LORs from him.
