Does it matter if we get a non-science LOR from a adjunct professor w/ a master's degree or a regular professor w/ a Ph.D? With the Adjunct, I was the only science major in her education class, so I definitely stood out and the class was much smaller (most recent). In the Ph.D.-level english professor class, I was the only non-english, science major but I don't know if I stood out as much in her class; other than not being an english major. Both knew I was interested in medicine and neuroscience. The recency is only by a semester b/t them. I took the american lit class last winter trimester and the education class last spring trimester? Any advice? Otherwise, I would go back and ask a psych professor from 4 years ago. I did well in both classes and was very attentive and personable.
