Hello, I am a junior and just transferred schools this semester. So basically, I have a few months until I apply in the 2014 cycle. I was wondering if its a good idea to ask for LoR at the end of this semester? Is it true that I need 2 science LoR and 1 non-science? I am finally in a research lab so I can ask my PI and that takes care of 1 science LoR. The other 2 science classes that I am in are large lecture classes and I did not really get to know either professor very well. However, I am a very active participant in my language class and I think the lecturer is fond of me. Do you think it is okay to ask him for a LoR after only 1 semester (I am not sure if the next level of the language next semester will have him as the instructor or not)? And for my other science LoR, do you think its okay if I really go to office hours alot next semester for biochemistry and try to get to know the professor for a LoR at the end of spring '14?
