length of recommendation letters
« on: December 16, 2008, 12:55:18 PM »
I'm sure this is posted somewhere but didn't see it..
How long should a law recommendation letter be? One of my recommenders did a nice letter (she let me read it), but it's almost 1.5 pages. Is this too long? Thanks!

There's no set standard. I'd say one to three pages is a good range. You just don't want them way too short or way too long.

But mostly, don't worry too much about it.
