I received a LOR from my volunteer manager and she basically wrote stuff like..

I am enthusiastic and passionate in performing activities...

How now I have a full-time job I am still committing to volunteering....

That I am easy to converse with ... etc etc


Is this LOR of any use AT ALL???

It's neutral.

If you have some other good ones and are just looking for some extra LORs to fill a requirement, having one with little substance is not going to help or hurt you.

If you have other LORs and can fill up the requirements, don't use it.
