Doesn't hurt that I'm applying to LS at the same (very small) UG I attended - getting a personalized letter from a department head is pretty good.

ahh i see, that's something positive

Seriously... If it's not too late, try to find someone else. I doubt a great LOR is coming from either of those. In fact they may have been trying to get you to find someone else by putting up such absurd requirements(at least the LSAT class one.) Does your undergrad have an "Lsat class"? (mine does but it's not labeled as such, a "critical thinking" class that happens to be extremely helpful for LSAT formal logic and LR in general)

The TTT schools thing is just flat-out strange. Did he/she go to one of them or something?




Oh I did and ended up getting a better recommender (I think).

It's funny, but he was really trying to help me in his own way. Basically said I should take a class bc I'm good in a classroom. The TTT thing was bc he wanted to know I was committed and not just gunning. Most of our profs come from an age where going to any ls was a sure shot to succeed and my UG has like no infrastructure/advice for having kids go to law school despite having a lawl school. so he was giving advice from that standpoint, I think, where it's better to go to any LS than not LS.

Ahhh, that makes sense, I've talked to a lot of people with the same "any ls will do" mentality. Usually have that hilarious joke about the lawyer that was last in his class on deck too. But I'm glad to hear it worked out for you!

"Which lawyer stereotype are you?" with pithy stereotypes for us to chuckle at and secretly worry that that's who we're going to become.

Edit: shit, whom not who. If I ever get outed on here I'm headed straight to TTTTown.

For a while, every time I would talk about law school applications with my mom she would say things like, "Well, as long as you pass the bar, that's all that matters," or "You know what they call the doctor that graduated last in his class from his local school?"

Needless to say, I was really frustrated for a while, and there are a lot of people out there with this same attitude.
