I don't know what Mensa would mean...I do recommend getting at least one academic letter, even if it isn't very good.

so i'm totally new to this applying to law school thing ... and i need some advice . . .i'm 2 years out of college, got my bs in microbiology, didn't form many "relationships" with any profs . . . so i'm not sure if i'll be able to get a good lor from any of them. i have other good sources for letters (community leaders, church leaders, employers, etc.), but i keep on reading that having a letter of rec from someone who can assess your academic potential from a classroom setting is pretty important.is this going to be a problem for me?thank you much.
