Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Re: No personal relationship with profs« on: January 21, 2014, 07:48:54 AM »
Go to professors you received the best grade in. Most students do not develop great relationship with their professors, but if you performed well in their class you can schedule a meeting to discuss why you want to enroll in law school. After a quick meeting they will likely you write a letter of recommendation as professors are interested in seeing you succeed. I would meet with professors and talk to them and remember professors are on your side and generally want to help.Thank you for the reply.
I actually did this and sent some mails out to the profesors who I got good grades with. I set up a meeting with one, another one told me to ust write a sample letter for him, and the last one told me that I could come meet him, but he is not sure how much help he would be considering he does not really know me.
Two questions here:
1) This sample letter, am I writing this from my own perspective? Or from his perspective. I am not sure if he wants me to write a letter that will almost be ready to be sent out or a letter where he wants me to state my case on why I would be a good fit for law school.
2) Should I follow up on this last professor? I got the highest grade in his class, but the class barely had any contact hours and it was not an interactive class. Maybe I could convince him of writing a good letter for me. Or should I just stich to the two I have and forget about this one since he does not seem all too enthusiastic?
