Letters of Recomendation: Which of these is most preferred?
A: Someone who has only known you for a month but can write stellar things about how great you’ve been so far
B: Someone who has known you for over a year, but your work for the has had its ups and downs, and ended on kind of a “down” note (but you have no reason to think they have any ill feelings toward you about it)
C: Someone who has known you for three years but they aren’t really involved with any work, be it stellar or crappy that you’ve done.
Trying to figure out who I should ask. The recs will be used for multiple purposes, not one specific one. Any insight you can provide is appreciated.
