pulling strings
« on: April 23, 2004, 03:48:42 PM »
one of my family members had his partners husband (who is a law professor at the school i want to attend) put in a good word for me with admissions.  worthless? worth a try? definetly helpful?  what do you guys think?

Dunno if profs interact with the admcomms. I suppose that it's better than no one saying anything good about you though. I would go for it if I knew someone at my schools.

i wouldnt think it could hurt.  but i would say that based on the opinion of the law prof.  if he thinks it would help it probably would.  if you have to twist his arm in order to get him to do it, then its probably a waste of time.

i didnt talk to the prof at all, my family member is a a very well known attorney, however i barely know him, but i think he carries enough clout to make the prof want to help him
