Generic recommendation letter
« on: August 06, 2007, 11:04:46 AM »
Oh another question.

for T 14 schools, submitting generic recommendations through LSDAS would be OK? Or targeted LORs would be better? what about recommendation letters on school websites?

Also, I am hearing conflicting things about CLS. Some used Generic and got accepted while others used specific and got dinged.  Should I call the CLS????

I really do not think it matters much. I really doubt many students have enough recommendors to write them specific letters for different schools.  I know people who used only generic letters and got into Harvard and Yale.

It seems to be more about LSAT and GPA strength. Recommendations play a relatively minor role, and I doubt they alone would keep you from entering into a T14 school. That is, unless, your recommender says you're horrible.  ;)
I have studied and thoroughly mastered the laws of logic. So to argue that I sometimes violate the laws of logic in ordinary conversation would be like arguing that some physicist circumvents the laws of physics in everyday life.
