I already have three great LORs:
- Undergraduate professor
- Master's program professor/advisor
- Current employer (more than 6 years out of undergrad, successful investment banking career so this letter is crucial)
- I have 2 targeted letters as well (University of Chicago, University of Colorado)
My father-in-law is a long-time partner at White & Case, and really wants to write a LOR for me. I realize this letter would likely only go to schools that accept 4 LORs (unless of course, someone here convinces me that I should replace one of the other letters).
Am I crazy? Should I be prioritizing this LOR? If it weren't my father-in-law, perhaps his LOR would be more attractive to me, but it feels a bit, ummmmm, silly to have a LOR from him. Thanks for the input!
