I am currently doing my Masters in Neuroscience and applying for a PhD in neuroscience and had a research project component (50%) but my supervisor is close to retirement and sort of unaware of the system of LORs and how strong they need to be/how they need to be written. I have a really good one from one of my academic professors and I have asked my supervisor and she said yes, but she’s been sitting on it and hasn’t done it yet. I do however have really good recommendations from my undergrad – college principal/head of department and a professor. Could I use those? Or should I submit an above average one from my supervisor (if she gives it to me, I know she’ll just say that I did good work and finished the project – no personal references etc). Or should I try getting another academic one from one of my masters professors?
