For a year, I worked for one manager. She and I talked often and she knew a lot about my goals, gave me a very positive performance review along with an on-the-spot bonus for excellent performance. However, two months ago she moved to another office in another city. Is it still OK to get her to write a recommendation rather than my current boss who barely knows me?
Also, I am pretty sure she has never written a recommendation for law school before. What do I need to tell her about it? What does it need to say, what info should I provide her with, etc.?
