Question LOR from same batch attending physician

Hi guys,

I have a friend who is same batch with me back in our country. He came to US right after graduation and he is now an attending physician. Is it a good idea I get a personal LOR from him? Will it highlight my old graduation year to program directors?

Thanks!

They'll know your old graduation year anyway. I think you should not run away from your old graduation year, instead be proud of it and show it up.

Yes. That LoR would work. No issues. Just like any other LoR.
