Title: "Older" student LOR Question
Post by: nygrrrl on September 28, 2009, 12:12:27 PM
So, I've been out of school for 23 years and am trying to figure out the LOR question.

Of all the professors I had in school (I majored in Gov, minored in theatre), the only one
with whom I'm still in contact is the head of our theatre department. I think he'd give me a great
recommendation (I was a terrific student and have had a very successful acting/producing career),
but I'm not sure whether an LOR from a theatre prof. would matter, to a law school admissions person!

As an actress, I don't really have one particular 'boss' so that's out... however, I have worked as an elected
official of my union for the past 10 years and the President of the union will write one of my LORs (I've served
on numerous contract negotiating committees, etc so this LOR will be pertinent.)

Question is... where else do I turn?
