Having graduated 12 years ago and not taken any classes since, it will be a challenge for me to get LOR from former professors. I have the big one covered (I've tracked down and contacted my pharmacy school advisor and he's agreed to write me a LOR), but my dilemma comes IF I need a LOR from a non-science professor. There was one teacher I really bonded with, spent a good deal of after-class time in her office, and even at that time she encouraged me to forget pharmacy and do medical school instead. So, I feel that with a little prompting she would probably remember me well enough to write me a LOR. Here's the thing: I knew she no longer taught at my university, so as I've been searching for her current location on the Internet, I've learned that a couple of years ago she was fired from a high school position (complete with media buzz) because of a "racially insensitive" comment that she made during class. She is currently back in a university-teaching position in a different state. So, my question to you guys is would you use this professor as a reference IF a non-science LOR is required?
