LOR from a current student?

Postby bedefan » Wed Aug 25, 2010 3:48 pm

There's a quote from an admissions dean (UCLA maybe?) in Montauk's book that says he's always impressed by LOR's from current students of his law school.

Has anyone tried this? A dumb idea?

I've got a friend from UG at one of my top choices, and after reading the quote started thinking of asking him to write my third/fourth letter.

A LOR from someone who is only a friend seems like an awful idea.

Yeah, I thought so too -- I'm guessing the dean in question must've been referring to a current student you'd had some kind of professional relationship with...
