LoR recommends me for JD/MA.. I'm only doing a JD

Postby tarh » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:56 pm

Is this a dealbreaker? It's a very nice 2 pager, the prof gave me an open copy of it--but he's on vacation and I want to submit this week so I can't ask him to edit it.

It was actually rwitten a year ago but I didn't think twice about it until now.

Why do you need to submit this week? This is definitely something I'd ask for an edit for if it were me...

Get it edited...

It will look weird if the MA isnt mentioned anywhere else in your app.

Not a deal breaker of course. LoRs are not that important....

Wait and request that it's edited. If I were an ad comm, I'd assume that it was a mistake and/or you don't really want to go to the school.
