I was reading through application instructions, and for Columbia, it said that "For applicants currently working on a full-time basis, a letter from an employer or immediate supervisor who most recently supervised your full-time work is required and may replace one of the two faculty letters. "
I worked full-time for a year after graduation, and I stopped working this summer to fully focus on law school application. I was planning on having all of my letters written by my college professors. Now I am freaking out. Please help! Do I absolutely have to include a letter from my supervisors at work? I don't think I would get a very strong letter from them.
Thanks so much!
I'm not 100% sure, but based on that quote, I wouldn't think you need a letter from an employer since you stopped working and, therefore, are not "currently working on a full-time basis."
I could be wrong, but that would be my best guess.

You quit your job half a year ago to work on applications? Have you really found them that complicated?
