I have transferred five times and have not gotten close to any professors, I was thinking of forgoing the academic LOR route in favor of people who can actually write about me. How much will this be frowned upon? Has anyone else done this?

I wasnt necessarily close with any of my teachers, they knew of me and knew I was a genius and did well in their courses but didnt know what a wonderful person I was and am. I would assume you must have had at least a couple teachers who remember you and if you did good work can at least write about you getting a good grade or showing promise through a presentation or paper you did. Then compliment those, perhaps, vague references with 1 or 2 outside academic LOR's from people who know you well and can back up whatever story you want to present to admissions people.
