Community College Instructor LOR
« on: January 23, 2007, 10:12:38 PM »
I recently got my BA, and I'm thinking about going back to school to take a few miscellaneous classes just for self-knowledge purposes.  With that said, I'm also trying to hit two birds with one stone by getting LORs from my future professors/instructors as well because I did not have a good relationship with my professors during my undergraduate career.  I'm planning to take these classes at a community college due to its financial advantages.  My question is do law schools take LORs from community college instructors seriously? Do they have any weight?

I would say that one couldn't hurt.  It will be fine at most schools so long as you have another letter from an employer.

thanks!  I didn't even think about getting one from my employer.  I can probably get in contact with the one undergrad prof that I was kind of close with to get a LOR.  I'll just simply get one from all 3 places.  You guys are of great help here at LSD.

If it helps, one of mine was from a CC prof. I did this because a) i knew should would write a good one and b) she was one of the few profs I had a good realtionship with that I could track down (I'm about 10 years out of UG). I was somewhat concerned, but the letter says all the good things it needs to and my employer recommendation is also very good. I guess we will see if it matters based on my accpetances.
