Hi guys,

My LOR for science faculty and my backup has fallen through. I am not sure what I can do to fix this situation. Would a TA letter submission be ok at this point?
They're not weighted very highly. Try to get the prof to co-sign the TA LOR.

It’s obviosuly better to get the professor letter, but if it’s a last resort the TA letter would be “ok.” Keep in mind that if you get a mediocre TA letter it isn’t going to help you besides checking the box for a LOR. You should be getting the LOR from someone who knows you well and can write a personalized letter (as opposed to a general letter).
