Is this a guide you drafted or found online?

That's what I'm worried about. I'm positive he's never written a recommendation for a law school application and I really don't want it to hurt.


Guide provided courtesy of someone who's helping me with apps! Wish I could share it but it's not really mine to share outside of the professors I sent it to. But Google "Recommendation Letters - Chris Blattman" because that definitely helped!

Will do. Thanks!

Our campus is so weird. There's a third with really nice old buildings. There's another third on the opposite side of campus with really nice modern buildings. Then right in the middle is all disgusting brutalist-style bullshit like that.

I always assumed most psych, crim, etc. majors were people who didn't know what they wanted to do when they enrolled at university. :lol:

I'm confused by "etc."

I switched from poli sci (or govt politics as my UG calls it) to psych because psych is interesting and law schools don't have pre reqs. I thought it would be extremely easy but I didn't consider the fact my UG is a research campus and requires pathways lol

Just a disclaimer, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with those majors. I think a lot of the content is very interesting, but I have quite a few friends in those programs (along with sociology, anthropology, communications, polisci) who don't know why they picked the major they did I'm sure that happens in other majors too, it just seems to happen a lot more in the social sciences. I was just joking with you about the psych bashing is all!

I'm just kidding <3 I bash one of my own majors more than any other, lol.

Aren't you at UC Berkeley? It's probably to protect law students from Molotov cocktails thrown by restless undergrads.

Fun fact: some of the dorms at Cornell are actually designed to be riot proof. The only stairs up are the fire escape and you otherwise need to use an elevator.

Yeah, most psyc and other life science people I know are academia/research gunners or med school gunners (or both).

Psych was a blow off department for people at my school for the social and cognitive tracks, but the neuroscience track (me) was largely research gunners and med school peeps. I was the only law school applicant that I knew, besides my friend who scored a 180 for fun but never applied and wasn't planning on it. He's going to live in Africa for a few years before med school. But the intro psych classes were mostly dum dums who thought a BA in psych meant they could work as a psychiatrist

Aren't we all at UC Berkeley? :lol: I'll also need some Wellies to cross the creek to get to class.

Most of my psych courses are memorizing molecules and receptors, anatomy, what happens when you put this chemical into this part of the brain, etc. Idk if it's really a social science.

Sorry, I just looked at my school's programs. They have a BA and a BSc in Psych, but it's on the social science faculty website. :lol: Go figure. The BA has a lot of fluff that social science programs have in it, and the BSc has a lot of hard science in it. Neuroscience is a completely different program here; it's a specialization you can do within Biomed. So obviously it varies. I'm talking about the BA lol. But yeah, not a social science. Got confused because it's on the social science faculty website.

Ah - fair enough. We don't have an independent neuroscience department here so most of my courses are psyc with a smattering of bio and physiology. again, never taken a non-neuro psych course - they're likely much more social science-y.

Yeah. There's a lot of like "Human Sexuality" and "Child Development" and "Interpersonal Relationships" type stuff, which was what I was thinking of when I said social scienc-y. I would definitely put neuro stuff in with life sciences.
