Letter of Application

Postby joelg360 » Sun Jan 24, 2010 7:06 pm

One of the two professors that has agreed to write me a letter of recommendation asked for a 'Letter of Application.' I believe that's the 3 paragraph cover letter, but she didn't clue me in as to who it should be directed to. Should I direct it at her asking for the recommendation (which shes agreed to write) or the law school I'm applying to?

Thanks!

She's probably talking about your personal statement. Professors often want to read it before they write the recommendation letter.
