Letter of Recommendation from an Extra-Curricular source [#permalink] New post 06 May 2013, 14:20
Instead of asking my direct superior and his direct superior (both of whom I work closely with) to write my letters of recommendation, since this would be fairly redundant, I am considering replacing one of them with my direct partner within the American Cancer Society, of which I am a committed volunteer in a fairly high position (I am the Volunteer Event Chair for the Relay for Life for a large city).

Is this not a good idea? It is a fairly "professional" EC.

Hi jforsland,

Absolutely do that! If having two superiors will be redundant then you are sacrificing nothing in that regard. Schools want to see multiple sides of you and being a dedicated volunteer in a leadership position for a high impact non profit is a great way to do just that!

Your recommendations should not only complement one another by showcasing a variety of perspectives and skills / development needs, but also play across the rest of your application to make sure they're communicating in the best possible way to share your story.

I think it's a wonderful idea!
