Dumb Letters of Rec question

Postby CattyPake » Wed Aug 03, 2011 12:01 pm

I'm going to be applying this fall to law schools and I have a list of about 15 schools that I am considering (I am retaking the LSAT in Oct and my final decision also depends on where my bf gets in for grad school). So is it a problem that my recommendations will be kinda vague since my professors won't be able to recommend me to specific schools?

You're definitely fine :) Most of us didn't have any targeted letters of recommendation. Certain schools (i.e. Stanford) like them, but they're not necessary

You'll be fine if they're vague as to specifics of the schools to which you plan on applying. You won't be fine if they're generally vague about you and your abilities or relationship with the professor. I'm pretty sure you're asking about just the former, but wanted to make sure about the latter just in case.
