Many faculty letters are impersonal. Even if you have a strong relationship with a professor, they're probably using a generic template they set up years ago. Law schools just want to see that you're liked well enough/performed well enough to get some professors to put their name behind you..regardless of whether the letter is excellent or average. Besides, admissions comes down to LSAT and GPA. I don't know of anyone who's been rejected for impersonal LOR's.

If not, SEND THEM IN, BABY!
I am applying to those two. Just heard back from my professor and he intends to send the letters soon--fingers crossed he follows through with that.
Thanks for the advice!

I apologize if this is thread jacking but what constitutes a good or bad LOR? Mine pretty much say way nicer things about my work and personality than I could say myself, but usually I assume most LORs are like that. Are some LORs just like this: "I had him or her in class and he or she got an A. She was a fine student."?
