Title: Rec letter mailed on 9/6 or 9/7 still not processed?
Post by: greenman on September 27, 2007, 06:11:47 PM
My recommendation letter was mailed on 9/6 or 9/7 and it still hasn't shown up. What should I do?
I called LSAC, they didn't seem bothered, told me to wait. Anyone had a similar experience? What will they do if its resent, ie, they end up getting two identical recommendations)? I just wanted to make sure they don't discard them if they're duplicated or something crazy like that.

Any input would be appreciated....

TIA

I know I should relax a little, but its just that I see others letters getting processed in 4 or 5 days.

I know how you feel man. My letters are taking along time to process also.  I'm also worried because it's impossible to find out what is happening to your letter since LSAC won't go looking for it due to a large volume of letters.  The only thing we can do is  wait.

Hey ADL,
   Well, when I called them last, they said its probably lost, the lady implied that everything received within the past two weeks was already processed. I had my recommender sent it again (via Fedex). This time it was processed in one business day.

that's good news.  but i'm wondering what happens with the lost lors.  i would hate to think that my lsac lor form w/all of my info on it is in the wrong hands....just something else for me to freak out about.

The torture of waiting for my LSAT score is unbearable enough, and on top of that, my recommender informed me that he sent his letter to LSAC three weeks ago via UPS. Does anybody know if UPS delivers to LSAC's PO Box. I've heard that FedEx letters go to some magical place and are processed immediately. If this is the case for UPS, then I need to call LSAC.

I spoke with LSAC and they said they never received the letter. All letters received during the past three weeks have been processed, so it looks like I have to get the UPS tracking number and find out what happened.

Note to all, if you are sending a recommendation letter via UPS or Federal Express, make sure you change the word "P.O. Box" to "Department" on the LSAC address.

sometimes they just do not process them. the 2nd natch of my letters came in in the same envelope. however, one of my letters was processed and the other wasn't.  i ended up re mailing the unprocessed letter. do not wait, just re mail it.

I feel your pain. I'm going to probably have to have 2 out of 3 of my LORs resent (faxed this time, I do believe). In addition, someone else's LOR somehow got mistakenly attached to my file, as I just received a letter in the mail yesterday about their LOR.

So... if your LOR is lost, it could have easily ended up with someone else. Fun fun.  :-\
