Re: which LORs should i submit?

(I'm a 0L but from what I can tell)

Generally law schools want only 2 or 3 letters of recommendation, and that third one should only be sent if it's A) particularly strong and makes up for a weakness in your app or B) if it's an individual that has a connection to the school you're applying to i.e. donor, alumni, etc.

Therefore, I think you should keep it to the three strong ones, at the most. You may even want to only submit two of those, I'm not sure. Either way, I don't think you need to worry about that fourth.

Three is probably too many especially if they are all academic, four is certainly over kill. Save it for if you are WL'd
