I don't know that they'll take it without the form.  They need the recommender's signature.  You can call lsac, and see what they recommend, otherwise I might start considering who else to ask for a rec.

There is no space for a signature on the LOR Form.  I think it is more for matching up the letter to your file.

There is a space, however, on the back of the envelope after they seal it.  If it isn't sealed by the recommender, it's no good because for all they know you invented your co-worker who is now missing.  I don't think they'll accept it, but if I'm wrong, good for you.
