I've been reading your posts on Simmons, i'm in the process of applying for May. I'm working on my application and i see the section for the 3 references. The advisor and supervisor I have and i'm not worried about. The last one while not mandatory suggests a NP that you've been practicing with that can vouch for you.
I asked my simmons Rep what I should do, and she suggested finding someone.
Have any of you not used a NP? And just gone with a colleague? I'm wondering if this could negatively affect my application.
Thank you all for your input
