Opinions on LOR for Fordham?

Postby tombnorton » Sun Nov 06, 2011 10:28 pm

Fordham does not require any LOR from applicants, but I'm wondering what the consensus is about sending them anyway. I've done some searching on this forum and have come across some tidbits of information, but not enough to convince me to do one thing or another.

I have 3.98 GPA/163 LSAT. I've been out of undergrad since 2009, and have been working for myself as a musician since then. As I see it, it may be difficult to get any meaningful LOR from college professors since I've been out of school for a few years. Also, since I've worked for myself as an independent contractor (freelance gigging and teaching guitar lessons), I don't really have any legitimate professional superiors who could speak for me. Any thoughts or advice? thanks.

I'd try to get 'em anyway, man. You have an awesome GPA, so if you sent some friendly professors in whose classes you performed well e-mails with your information and aspirations, I'm sure at least one or two will bite. Plus, IIRC, you're probably on the fence at Fordham, so you'll need the extra boost from the halfway decent LORs you obtain.

I say two for every school unless they require three.
