thanks for the responses.

sigh...i guess i'll have to contact random professors i did well with to get a second academic rec.


12
So I've asked two professors and my boss that I interned for last summer for recs.

One professor said he would write one for me, another professor said she had to write possibly 40-60 other recommendation letters so she might not have time (she's in charge of law forum and I wasn't in law forum). My boss from my internship offered to write one for me a couple months ago and I've contacted him about it.

So essentially, I have one for sure recommendation from a professor, one very likely from my boss, and one unlikely from another professor.

The current best case scenario is that I only get one academic recommendation. Should I randomly look for a professor I took previously (that I won't know at all) for a recommendation or am I OK with only one academic recommendation?

Does it matter if I get a letter of recommendation from a professor in a lower division class that isn't my major?

I heard upper division courses are better to get recs from? Is this true?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: October LSAT = disadvantage?

Also, it looks like the October LSAT will not allow me to apply as an early decision to UCLA law because apparently the latest LSAT they accept is the September one (even though the October LSAT score will probably be released before their November 15 ED deadline).

October LSAT = September LSAT
Same test.
o rly.

thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / October LSAT = disadvantage?

I was planning on taking the LSAT in October, but is there a disadvantage to it? Will it disallow me to apply early in the admissions cycle?

Thanks, I'll ask for a letter soon!

Also, if I don't apply to law school, what do you propose I do?

Law School Admissions / Re: LSDAS GPA

QUESTION REGARDING LSDAS GPA: IS YOUR LSDAS GPA EXPLICITLY LISTED FOR YOU ON THE LSAC WESBITE OR DO YOU JUST HAVE TO CALCULATE IT YOURSELF?

i haven't signed up for the lsdas yet and i'm wondering if your recalculated lsdas gpa is shown to you on the website or do you have to rely on your own mock recalculation.

thanks.

So I had an internship over this past summer, and I'm probably going to use my boss for one recommendation with the other two coming from professors. The problem is, I'm currently a junior, and I won't be applying for at least another year (aiming for Fall '11). I'm afraid if I wait any longer to ask for a LOR, too much time will have passed between the time I've worked with him this past summer and the time I'll actually start applying. So what should I do? Also, where do I send a LOR?

THANKS.

Law School Admissions / Re: numbers good softs bad

Like, actually. How did you spend your actual time when not in class, sleeping, eating, or doing homework. Anything beyond xbox? If so, you've got at least one soft factor. Finesse it and give it a nice shiny gloss.
i'm in the same boat as the OP.

i have no softs. pretty much i spend all my free time working out and hanging with friends and playing games.

i'm amazed with how so many people get so many ec's in, especially during the school year. in the summer, i can definitely see where there's time, though.
