Hey everyone, I'm a current 4th year student who will be applying to both radiology and IM and wanted people's opinion regarding reference letters. For context, I have 1 radiology and 4 IM letters so far. 1. I've read that specific letters are preferred over general ones, but in my case I'll be using my IM letters for both radiology and IM. Should I ask my IM referees to write a general letter or a specific letter for IM? 2. How preferable is it to submit a letter that's specific for IM to radiology? Since it's hard to get strong radiology letters on electives, I hear it's quite common that applicants use letters from other specialties. 3. Does general vs. specific letters differ significantly, if I ask my referee to comment on the same skills and qualities? Thank you!
