Recommendations / 2001 Grad - 2 Professional LOR ok?
« on: September 06, 2007, 11:24:49 AM »
I graduated college in 2001, and did not keep in touch with any of my professors.  At the time, I had no inclination to attend grad school of any sort, much less law school.  I ended up with a 3.1 GPA, which thankfully is not bad enough to kill my hopes of going to law school now.

My question is this:  I have done well, professionally, since I left school.  I've had two jobs, both in the same industry and in a similar role, and have risen from temp worker to Coordinator to Manager (and by the time I send in my applications, possibly Senior Manager) in that time.  I am leaning toward getting LOR from one of my old bosses at my previous job and a LOR from my boss at my current job, who has told me herself that Law School would be an excellent choice for me.   Both are Vice Presidents, so I feel that they have enough seniority to make their words of recommendation credible.   I am also certain both would write very solid LOR on my behalf.

The problem is that I would then have no academic LOR.  I've heard some people say that one academic LOR is required, but I sincerely can't think of any prof. who could give me anything better than a generic LOR, and even then I wouldn't be comfortable.

What do you think?  I could probably get a LOR from the university registrar, who knew me well in college as I worked for him for 3 years, but that's not the same as a professor, although it is academic-related.

Thanks!
