LOR from "faculty member"

Postby SKlei » Wed Apr 11, 2012 11:27 am

So one of the schools that I applied to for their early action transfer option is holding my application for two reasons. One those reasons is because they haven't received two letter of recommendations from current law professors. However, when I originally spoke to someone in their office they told me it was fine to use under grad LOR's and explain why I was using them in an addendum, which I did.

On their instructions it says: "At least one (and preferably both) recommendations and/or evaluations should be from a faculty member who is familiar with applicants’ academic performance and has had an opportunity to evaluate some significant aspect of their academic work."

Is the woman I am dealing with correct in her telling me that I need two LORS from law professors or should I contact someone else in the office who is higher up?

Just use LORs from law school professors. Your undergraduate academic performance is largely irrelevant now. Not sure why that lady told you UG was OK - that is not typical.

Only problem is that all of my courses are the whole year, except Crim. Law. So the professor who will be writing a letter for me said she would only do it at the end of the year
