So I just got back from a conference to find a letter from the University of Vermont. They said they need 3 letters from professors-- not just faculty members but people who have actually taught me. This is a problem b/c a) I graduated in 2001 from a large university and the only profs I knew really well have already written letters for me. and b) they want it by Dec. 31. I called the admissions office and they said that they needed either a committee letter (don't have a committee) or 3 profs, and they won't budge (even though my boss is on faculty, she didn't actually teach me...) yeach. The thing is that I really liked UVM and would love to go there. Should I bother trying to get that LOR? I'm frustrated.
