LORs from non-academic university personnel?

LORs from non-academic university personnel?
« on: July 19, 2008, 09:39:12 PM »
My LOR time is quite a bit away, but I'm wondering what the consensus is on LORs from university personnel that aren't professors/deans/etc? By the time I'm looking for LORs, I'll have two years experience as a resident advisor, and I'm pretty close with most of the higher-ups in the housing department. Generally I wouldn't think of asking for one from housing, but since I've been really involved on campus (both as part of the job requirements and above and beyond them), particularly in areas of political, historical and legal education and involvement, they would probably have the most to say about my interest and devotion to those areas and attempts to help educate others about them. How do you think most of the higher-ranked schools would view such an LOR?

I'd say this sounds about like someone getting a LoR from a job. It will do if it has to, but I'd still go for professors first.
