Reference letters question

Recommended Posts

Hi all! So I am aware that Windsor requires two letters of reference... However, I am wondering what your opinion is on sending three? I have three very strong letters, or is this an absolute no?

Thank you, be nice!

If you apply to Windsor Law, one letter of reference is academic and the other letter of reference is non-academic. You more than likely will have to submit three letters of references on OLSAS, as a majority of the other institutions require two letters of academic reference, unless you are a mature candidate.

I'm only applying to Windsor so do you think I should send them the three? Two would be academic... and one non academic

Hey there! I'm currently a 1L JD/MSW student at Windsor and I submitted 3 letters of reference. Don't think it will hurt your application by any means but you may want to evaluate the strength of all three letters. Might not be worth including a third letter if it isn't as strong as your other two. Hope this helps!

The third one will be ignored and you are not able to follow instructions. (Just my thoughts) By reading your third LOR, that will be unfair to other applicants.

By the way, how do you know they are very strong?

    • I received a B in a Business Law class in my third year as a result of an abnormally high curve for the class. I believe the average was 86-87%, which normally translates to about an A-. Is it worth explaining in my application?
    • Hi, I am an American whose Canadian fiance received an excellent physician offer to Ottawa Hospital. I am applying to both Canadian and U.S. schools and learned about the joint American-Canadian JD...However, I am concerned for the same reasons that you illustrated.  I would like to hear about your experience thus far. Thank you. 
    • Hi everyone - very sorry for my lack of replies here. I set this thread to notify me when something is posted and I think that setting got lost in the forum upgrade.  I’ll endevour to answer stuff now, even though it may be later than you all probably wanted it to be.  I got the percent to letter mappings from the UBC website, and at the time it is my recollection that I translated everything correctly. I’m not in a position to check right now, but I will review the numbers I’m using and confirm that they coincide with what has been published by the school.  Bear in mind that “relied upon” is too strong a word to describe what I would say you can do with the numbers you get from the calculator. They’re an estimate (hopefully a reasonably close one) but nothing more. Your UBC-calculated grades may differ by a little or a lot, depending on your personal circumstances. My hope is that they’ll differ only a little a majority of the time.  I intend to fix this problem because it’s obvioisly causing some issues. When I’ve made the change I’ll update you all.
