Letter of Recommendation vs Evaluations

Postby ip_law_app » Wed Jul 18, 2012 9:49 pm

When adding recommenders, you can also evaluators. Any idea what schools request, or even care about the evaluations in addition to recommendations? Do people typically just ask their recommenders to fill out the evaluation form too or just ignore it?
Thanks!

I was wondering the same thing. Evaluations aren't required but should you get recommenders to do it anyway

I didn't use a single evaluation nor do I know anyone who used one. I would say a LoR is definitely more substantial and preferred by law schools anyway.

With that said, it's not like an evaluation is going to hurt you..

Don't waste your recommender's time. I'm pretty sure law schools don't even look at this.

Evaluations are not necessary.
