This person would certainly not be hurt any more by such a letter than by the felony convictions. The letter won't be able to speak much to the person's academic qualifications, but it would help assuage any doubts the adcomm may have about his character. It would also be fairly unique and ballsy. If I were in this person's position, I'd do it, but I'd also secure two academic letters from my undergrad institution, if feasible.

I'd say there's definitely at least one con involved.

LMAO!!! +2. Brilliant, Tom. Just brilliant. :D

Btw, Tom, did you decide on H or Y? Given your 95% leaning towards Y, I trust that you will be heading to New Haven that is?


Yeah, I'm just gonna visit them during their ASW to make sure they're not actually a cult or something before I fully commit.
