Quick questions on filling info about Recommenders

  1. Dec 22, 2009 #1
    Hi everyone,

    If I am the TA of a professor who is going to write me a recommendation for grad school, how should I describe it in the field "relationship to you" in the application?

    All the words came to my mind are similar to a principle or a supervisor, but I am trying to figure the academic word in English to describe his relationship to me formally.

    Thanks in advance,

    Supervisor is fine, as is boss, though I don't think it actually matters all that much. If you also do research for him, he's your advisor/mentor.
