Are LOR necessary?

<p>Are letters of recommendation absolutely necessary for law school admissions assuming that I have a (very) solid GPA and LSAT?</p>

<p>Yes. Most schools require LORs, and some schools like Boalt count your PS and LORs as 1/3 of the admission decision.</p>

<p>I think just about every school requires a couple of them, but they virtually never have an impact. People generally just ask a couple professors whose classes they did well in to write letters.</p>

<p>Sigh. Hopefully my lack of social skills/ability to form interpersonal relationships doesn't ruin my law school aspirations.</p>

<p>Are you respectful to your professors? Did you produce high quality work in their courses?</p>

<p>If so, you should be fine. </p>

<p>In other words, if your LOR's are just ok, but not impressive, having a strong GPA/LSAT will overcome it for 99% of schools.</p>
