Are LOR from community college professors looked down upon?

Post by eriksmith617 » Sun Oct 21, 2012 6:53 pm

I have good stats and plan to apply to Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, and NYU.

I took 30 credits at a community college before transferring to the University of Michigan. Will a LOR from a community college professor hurt my chances of getting into elite schools listed above? In other words, do top law schools look down upon LOR from community college professors?

No, they don't. CC Prof is more than ok.

I think they'd rather see a LOR from a CC prof who can truly attest to your academic potential than one from a UM professor who would write a more-generic one. Should be fine.
