Hey everyone,

I have been working as an EMT-B during my first gap year and was going to get a letter of recommendation from my supervisor/preceptor who is a paramedic.

Unfortunately, however, the letter writer said that they do not have official letterhead to use.

Should I still get a letter from this person? I know the letter would be very strong but I'm not sure how much weight it would actually carry.

I appreciate any advice!
They don’t need official letterhead but I’m pretty sure they still need to make their own heading or letterhead for the letter to be valid.

Some schools require official letterhead

(I think UMN-TC for example)
