will these people be okay for my LOR?
« on: June 26, 2007, 11:39:31 AM »
I have one letter coming from my academic advisor with whom I've had multiple classes and participated in EC in which she is the advisor.  My second letter is coming from my supervisor for the internship I'm in this summer - she is a law prof. My third letter is coming from my boss of the past four years - she knows me really well from a nonacademic stand point.

Should I try to find another academic reference or am I fine with the above three?

If all three recs are up to par (packed with info about your abilities and not just how gentle and kind hearted you are), you are in a good spot mate. One more will not be a bad idea as some of these recommenders are known to drop off the face of the earth just when you need them the most.

3 LORs is plenty.  Is your internship academic?  Do you know this coordinator well or are you just using her because of who she is?  I'd say the first and third one you listed are going to be your best bets, the internship person is optional.
