So, When i first made my file at the LOR holding place, I told them it would be a confidential file. BUT-- I have already read one LOR from my PI that he handed to me after he sent my LOR in. And now, another PI that I have worked with a while ago asked me to write my own LOR and said he'll sign it. I don't feel too good about myself doing this, because afterall, I did say it would be a confidential file. I can't have this guy write an LOR for me because he tried, and wrote a whole two paragraphs for me. He said I need to elaborate on what he said, and he will sign it. Does this seem to be unethical to you guys? How can I put a twist on this situation so I don't feel guilty about it. I mean, I don't want to lie to schools at interview time if they ask me, "so did the PI actually write your letter?" I don't know why a school would even ask, but I feel rotten anyway.
