Thanks for posting. In regards to your question, we often have clients who want to use a professor for a recommendation. If you are not sure whether a recommender is appropriate, think about the types of questions they will have to answer. These questions are frequently linked to your leadership skills, your performance on teams, communication skills, ethics, and more. A professor is usually not in a position to comment on these traits. If the recommender you are considering cannot say much more than “you are highly intelligent” or “you are a hard worker,” he or she is probably not the right choice.
Hope this was of help.
