Re: Academic LORs?

Postby newyorklaw23 » Fri Feb 26, 2010 12:41 pm

More than anything else, a law school wants to know that you'll be able to handle the challenging work load, so they tend to prefer academic LORs. I'd strongly recommend having at least one academic LOR. Pick a professor you like, take a couple of their courses, make sure you do well (at least an A-), and try to develop a relationship with them. Drop into office hours, ask questions in class, etc. Chances are they'll be happy to write you a rec.

As for the LSAT, give yourself about 6 months to study, depending on how you do on your diagnostic. You can get tons more info on this in the LSAT forum.
