Y'all thought I was exaggerating about not having better options
Leaning towards not having a second academic LOR if the first professor's is gonna be like totally laughable. I wish I knew what "brief" meant. Any advice on how to move forward? My only goal is the LORs not hurting so I don't underperform my numbers. I'm beyond the point of wanting them to be ~glowing.
Also dealing with this has me slowly losing motivation to study for the September LSAT which is probably the opposite of what should be happening ugh
I noticed over the course of the thread that you seem to be worried about asking certain professors and not having a writing sample to give them. If you have any potential options where this is your only hang-up I'd recommend asking them too. I didn't give a writing sample to either of my recommenders and they never asked for it, and they still wrote very good letters. One I was close to personally, but the other just worked off of my resume, PS, and a little statement I wrote for her about why I wanted to go to law school and why I thought I would be successful. That one actually ended up being better because she basically wrote exactly what I wanted her to because I gave her specific information that she stuck to.
