I'm applying to MSRED at Columbia and NYU this year. NYU requires 2 recommendations while Columbia requires 3. I am going to ask my co-worker and my direct manager for the first two letters, but I'm still not sure who'd be the best as a 3rd recommender. I have few prospects:
1. my mentor in real estate investment who has known me for 4 years and advised me on investments.
2. former employer manager
3. lawyer or mortgage broker I've worked with for 1 year (I think this is my least favorite)
4. any suggestions?
I would really appreciate your valuable advice. Thanks!
