When law schools say they are looking for letters of recommendation, who does it serve you best to recommend you? I have enough people that are willing to, or have offered, that I am not sure who it would best me to use.
I received an associate's degree from a 2 year collge (Brown Mackie College)- my director there for my degree is willing to (he used to be a lawyer), one of the philosophy teachers (who used to teach at berkley) is willing to, and the head of the english department there is willing to.
I also have people who are willing to write me letters of recommendation from my current school (Bethel College)- my current director (who was an attorney and currently sits on the city counsel where we live), and one of my philosophy teachers (who has had a few books published). My Literature teacher has also said she would be happy to write me one.
Outside of those I have a few more people- my current boss (I work at the local Center for the Homeless. By boss I mean the executive director of our organization) and one of our volunteers who is one of the teachers at Notre Dame and has published books that Harvard and Cambridge currently use.
While I can not turn in that many letters of recommendation, I am not sure which to use. They would all show various aspects of my work and school career. What would you use? I intend to apply to a few of the T14 schools, and don't want to get dismissed simply because my LOR was not from an impacting source.
