    One of my professors is going to do a letter of recommendation as a poem.

    I don't know...I mean it might make you stand out, but not necessarily in a good way...so it's a risk..

    this is a bad idea. ask the prof to write a traditional LOR or find another prof.

    You should confirm with your professor that he has the correct spelling of the word "troll."

    Think about how much more effort that would require tho, its not simply _____ was in my class, he/she received such and such grade.

    How adcoms would look at it I don't know, but you sure would stick out, for better or worse!

    to address your point, a poem simply is not appropriate for dental school applications.

    no need to discuss this any further though; the OP is a troll looking for guillable idiots to believe this is a truthful post.

    Well I never said it was appropriate or not, just that it required more effort.

    Also I do apologize, who am I to question your all knowing wisdom that you can definitively say what is and is not appropriate for ds applications.

    nothing's wrong with asking a question, we're all just giving our opinion. By asking a question you have to expect answers you're not going to necessarily like

    I never said I didn't like them. I expected there to be a difference of opinion. A poem does add a sense of sincerity to the recommendation, but it is not as professional.

    HA! I hope either you are kidding, or he/she was kidding. No one would really do that...right? You mean something like:

    In my class Benoir made a wreath
    So he tells me he likes teeth
    I think he would do some really good work
    He'd be alright with patients because he isn't a jerk.
    Accept him to your esteemed school
    He's really good at suctioning drool.
