    Hello everyone!

    I have a question regarding references. I am applying for masters degree to some universities and the same thing does my girlfriend. We would like to do the same course at the same uni.

    One of my referees asked me if he should mention this fact in my and her letter of reference.

    What do you think? Can it have any influence on our application or be perceived as an disadvantage? :confused:

    I don't see why any admissions committee would care whether your girlfriend was coming or not. Seems a very strange thing for a referee to want to put in a reference.

    What beefmaster said. It would be a bizarre thing to mention in a reference imho

    Thank you for reply.

    I think that he wanted to give an example that we both form a good team and are determined to get into the same uni. Anyway I agree with you guys.
