Stanford LORs
« on: September 03, 2008, 12:02:46 PM »
So on Stanford's website it says to "Please be aware of the high value Stanford places on school-specific letters of recommendation." Then has a procedure separate from LSAC's to deal with target letters specific to the school.

My three recommenders have already written and submitted their recommendations, should I now go back and ask them to re-submit specific ones for SLS?

Well, if they've already submitted the recommendations, and LSAC hasn't sent them to SLS, I think you can ask your LOR writers to fill out the cover sheet and submit it to LSAC. However, if the letters have already been sent without cover sheet, then I wouldn't recommend resending them with the SLS cover sheet attached.

I wouldn't bother. Two reasons:

1)if you look at other discussion boards, it's been confirmed by numerous sources that it isn't actually the case that Stanford gives advantage to students who submit these - it's only the case if it is written by a stanford law graduate. They can tell if your recommendors just inserted a cover page.
2) It will annoy your professors, which is never a good thing.

Hope this helps!
