can't you just ask some tfs?  apparently law schools dont really care...  so if you have one from your pre-law advisor, one from a TF, and a third from an employer.. then you're set.

What's a TF?

Yeah, we figured it was just a TA, but what the hell does the F stand for?  "fellow", "faculty"?  These are all I can come up with and both are incredibly lame.

Ooh, teaching fellow.  I was thinking faculty, which would make them not TA's at all, which didn't make sense in the context of the original post alluding to TF's.
