Quick Recommendation Question

Postby Brittany2012 » Tue May 22, 2012 4:19 pm

Very Quick Question: I know what the answer to this would be when dealing with the "part-time professor who knows you well" and the "stud professor who doesn't know you as well", but I'm not 100% sure that that same principle applies in a big-law firm.

I work at a big law firm in D.C. Do you think I should get:

1) A ridiculously strong recommendation from a second year associate.

2) A very strong recommendation from a counsel (level in-between associate and partner at my firm).

Why?

Thanks!

Good luck.

Agreed.
