Using same LOR for law school and grad school??
« on: July 29, 2004, 03:57:05 AM »
I want to secure recs not only for law school, but for grad school as well. I will be applying to two Masters programs (History) in addition to law schools. I'm mainly using the MA schools as backups in case I dont get into any law school programs that I want to attend. Is it possible to use a LOR for both law school and grad school?? I mean, as long as they talk about your academic abilities etc, then it should be ok right? The grad school I'm applying to wants 3 recs, and most law schools require 5 LOR's would be a lot...I haven't even secured my first one yet.

I would suggest you have the person writing your LOR to use the format according to your law school you are applying.  If you don't get in, then recycle them and send them to your graduate school. 

The other option is to have the same LOR writer, write two seperate letters to both law school and graduate school.  I believe for some law schools, the format is totally different compared to graduate schools.
