    Hello everyone, I wanted to ask would it reflect badly if my letters of recommendation are mainly from adjunct professors.

    A little background information, I am in a public school and the classes are really huge so its hard for the lecturer to remember you while the lab instructors know me better.

    I would appreciate any pointers since I'm having an anxiety attack with my DATs within a couple of weeks

    I don't see it as an issue if they can provide better content for the letter than a lecturer from a huge class.

    are you sure because i have read from a couple of sources that an adjunct professor should not write a recommendation letter, while so far i have two professors who i have interacted with consistently writing letters of recommendation for me
