What is the general opinion about taking one reference from a peer? Or should all recos be from superiors?

Do not do that... many schools explicitly say not to and I don't think that would help you at all.

A reco from a superior would be highly preferred I think.

Ah, thanks for the info. I did not know it was frowned upon. E.g. check this out: http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/mba/admissi ... rence.html

GSB actually asks for a peer reference specifically.

Thats unusual... most other schools say they don't want that... but if they have 3 I guess it works.

Event with three, I would have taken 2 from supervisors and one from a college professor.... this is really unusual for Stanford!
