Isn't that hard to do, to have three classes with one professor?
<p>Not at all. I was a sophomore transfer, and this is my third semester with one professor, and my second with another. By summer of next year, I should have completed three courses with both professors.</p>
<p>You will want a professor who can write a recommendation that demonstrates his familiarity with your work, accomplishments, personality, and ability to perform well in law school. One course (unless it is a tutorial of some sort) will only give him a smattering of the aforementioned categories. </p>
is it something you have to plan out in order to achieve?
<p>This is hard to answer, especially for Hoyas; at Georgetown, students do not know the course-offerings for the following semester until late in the prior one. I have been extremely fortunate to be able to work with one of my professors for three (and probably more) semesters.</p>
<p>Even if you cannot take courses with them, doing research, co-authoring publications, and just keeping in touch with them are all good ways for him to understand you in ways he could never understand the student who sat at the back of a 100-student-large lecture.</p>
