Can I use LORs from the previous year?
« on: October 02, 2005, 09:03:33 AM »
I had been planning to take the October LSAT, but I realized wasn't prepared, so I decided to wait until February to take the test and apply for the fall of 2007. But last month, anticipating that I was applying for fall 2006, I had my professors/employer write LORs and send them to LSAC. Now that I've decided to wait, do I need the recommenders to send new letters next year? Will the schools care that my file has year-old letters? Or will I just look like I started preparing early?
