Why pass up the chance to trade 3% off the highest test score in the class for a shot at some good publicity?
DurfBarian said:It depends on the grad school. There are employers that like to see recommendations too, though. The point I'm trying to make is that this is a 3% difference in a single test score and it's a foot in the door, so to speak, to build a more memorable relationship with the teacher.
