LOR from Community College?

Postby anteater1 » Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:15 pm

I recently transferred to a University (UC-Irvine) and i'm in my 2nd quarter here. Unfortunately, I haven't made any personal connections with professors at my University.

However, i've maintained a close relationship with 2 of my professors from Community College (Fullerton College) who agreed to provide me with a LOR.

The question is, will law schools look down upon LOR's from Community College Professors? Should I even submit one from them or just work at getting LOR's from my University Professors?

Thanks.

I hope not. I had 3 LORs and one of them is from a community college.

I don't think it makes a difference. Its probably better to have a LOR from a community college prof who knows you well, then to have some generic LOR from a University Prof who hardly knows you at all......
