    I Have Two Written References From Lecturers Which I Received When I Finished My Undergraduate Degree In 2008. The References Were Written For A Postgrad Application For A Human Rights Course.they Specifically Mentioned How I Was Suited For This Course. I Got In But I Did Not Go.
    I Want To Apply For A Postgrad Course In Psychology And I Am Too Embarrassed To Ask These Lectures For Another Reference For A Totally Different Subject. Please Advise. Do You Think I Should A- Send My Very Good But Inappropriate Old References. B-get A Reference From My Employer (job Not Related To Psychology) Or C- Grow Up And Ask The Lecturers For New References?
    (i Cant Ask Other Lectures Because I Only Had Two)

    C, of course. Sending an old reference which was quite clearly written for another application, for a different course, is a very bad idea, and a reference from an employer who can't actually comment on your suitability for the course won't do you much good.

    If I Were In Your Position I Would Ask My Lecturers For Another Reference. they Probably Won't Even Question Why You Didn't Take Up Your Other Course.
