Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION...
« on: October 16, 2008, 05:16:19 AM »
I've been out of university now for the past five years and have not been in constant contact with my former poli sci professors.  I'd like to approach two of them for a letter of recommendation for law school (the chairman and my professor...the two that spoke the most highly of me during my studies), but I'm worried that since I've not been in university during the past five years, that it will be next to impossible to get letters of recommendation from them. 

I've been home since my studies caring for my family and taking on freelance projects here and there (not from anyone that I would approach for a letter of recommendation).  For those of us that are non-trads, and have graduated from university already (perhaps SAHM, etc), how have you handled getting letters of recommendation?  Particularly academic letters of recommendation? 

Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks. 

Black Law Students / Re: SEO Corporate Law Internship

I used to work for a brokerage house, and we had several interns each summer from SEO.  Some received job offers in their first year of interning (rare), and others were asked to come back for the second summer...afterwards, many of them received job offers. 

They gayly returned to their final year of study with a job offer already in hand and could breath a sigh of relief.  They then returned to the bank and made a crapload of money.  I would wholeheartedly suggest taking part in the program if you can.  I fully intend to. 

I'm wondering if they have an age requirement....seeing as they are proponents of Equal Opportunity, it would be ironic if they actually discriminated agaisnt working adults based on age.
