    Hi all! So I'm in the midst of getting my LORs in sorts and had quick question. One of my recommenders was my professor whom I had when I was a freshman; however, she since moved on to teach at another university. In AMCAS, when filling in the LORs it asks if your recommender is associated with a school, and I don't know what to put. The only two options I have are my own university and "other" (selecting other doesn't provide an option to list another university) so which one do I check? Do I check my own university since that's when I had her, or should I check other since she no longer teaches at my university? Thanks!

      I wouldn’t over think this one - select the university option. The letter will make it clear that this professor taught you in some capacity.
