I am considering asking the Undergraduate Program Director at my school for a LOR. I have worked with her closely while I was the president of my program's student association but I've never had a class with her. So I'm wondering if she is still considered an academic reference?

Thank you,

Hi Nikaar,

Good question! This is one of those situations where since it's coming from a school and you worked with her in an academic setting, it will count as academic (kind of like, "if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck").

If you need any pointers on getting the best LOR, check out:

Good luck!!
