Letter of Recommendation

An ideal Letter of Recommendation supplements your application and bolsters the picture you have painted in your essays.

Usually, 2 LORs are required by the adcom. Thus, both your LORs should portray you in a different light, adding volume and depth to your personality.If both the LORs talk about the same things, it is a bad sign & suggests that people have a limited and/or self-projected opinion about you.LORs are also a measure of how people perceive you and how you get along with others.

Coming from a credible 3rd person, the admission committee tends to take the referrer's views seriously & a positive and a compelling recommendation can go a long way in securing you an admit.
