LOR Question

Postby cmattos » Thu Aug 26, 2010 12:26 pm

I am having a really hard time finding a second academic reference to write an LOR for me..I just graduated in May, and I have a job now and work closely with our in-house counsel, so I was wondering if I could have one academic and then one LOR from work.

But I have heard if you just graduated recently you should only have academic ones, and one of the apps I saw (can't remember which one right now) also highly "encouraged" only having academic LORs..Help!

yeah, you'd really be pushin it with a work-related LOR. It's generally acceptable to have a mixture of academic and work-related LORs when you have a year or more of post-grad work experience. Though if you truly can't get a solid academic LOR, a work-related LOR would be better than nothing.

If you can't find a second academic one then you have no choice. In the end I don't think this is going to make or break you, unless 2 academic ones are required as opposed to recommended/preferred.
