# of LORs per school?

Postby tipler4213 » Thu Jul 08, 2010 6:33 pm

I am wondering if anyone knows where to get a list stating the number of LORs each school requires and allows. I am trying to contact my recommenders now and determine who will right general/school-specific letters before I complete the LSAC forms, but I can't decide until I know (roughly) how many I will be needing.

Thanks.

The best idea is to get 4 recommendations as that is the max any school will accept and then send each school the max they accept.

I never head of this being necessary. I think two is fine.

I agree it's not necessary, however as relatively small soft factors are concerned, I think it can make a difference. Most law schools say recommendations only matter so much, yet they want academic recommendations, so if you can have 4 people say something good about you or just 2 wouldn't the person with 4 look better? Maybe only by a miniscule amount, but nonetheless it's a little better.

It's an interesting question that I never really thought about. I think I might make a thread about this.
