Hi everyone, appreciate your views on two questions.
While TN is clearly demanding Mandatory Criteria to be supported with fresh evidence (the last 5 years), does the same apply to optional criteria, eg “track record for inntovation” or “academic contributions”? Would any achievements of about 20 years old qualify as evidences for the optional criteria?
Among the 3 required application recommenders I have potentially the same people who could also provide good evidences for mandatory/optional criteria. Should I ask them for separate letters as criteria evidences? Or otherwise a recommendation could be a single document and an evidence can additionally refer ro a particular part of it?
