I had a question about letters of recommendation. I've been working through school as a systems analyst at the same university I go to school at. It isn't physics related, mostly SQL database design/admin and coding in Python and ASP.NET.
I was thinking about getting a letter from my boss, because she has known me for three years and was very impressed with my work.
The down-side is that work has nothing to do with Physics per se.
Would it be better to get a third recommendation from a Physics professor who I've gotten the highest score in the class with, but who I've never really worked with?
While developing my application, is the: "I worked while getting through Physics Undergrad." a good route to go, or should I not emphasize that part?
Thanks for any advice!
