LOR Question

Postby pfla » Sun Jan 02, 2011 1:02 pm

Background: 1. I've been out of undergrad for a year; 2. I currently work at a law firm as a legal assistant; and 3. I referenced the law firm I worked at while in undergrad in my personal statement.

Would it be better to get a letter of recommendation from a professor, the attorney whose firm I worked at during my undergrad (and is referenced in my personal statement), and the attorney I work for now? Or would it be better if I got a letter of recommendation from two professors and only one of the aforementioned attorneys?

I almost feel like I should get one from the attorney I work for now since I've been out of undergrad for a year. I also feel like it'd be great to have one from the attorney I worked for during my undergrad because I mention his firm in my personal statement.

What do you think?

Either is acceptable, although two from professors and one from your employer is the traditional choice.

That's what I thought as well. Also, I feel like my boss from my undergrad would provide a better letter of recommendation than my current boss.

Thanks for your advice.
