How to send old LORs?

How to send old LORs?
« on: September 05, 2004, 01:44:33 AM »
I asked my school for an old LOR I had written for my study abroad application. They were like "Yeah, just come pick it up. Ask for Suzy." I mean, am I supposed to be able to read it before it's sent off? Doesn't it have to be sent by the school in a sealed envelope? What should I do here that won't look suspicious? Thanks.

i get the impression from this post that you were the one who wrote the recommendation.

Ha. Yeah, that looked bad. What I meant was "the LOR I had HAD written for me..." I didn't write it. My boss did. I'm not a total dipstick.

i knew what you meant, i was kind of just f-ing with ya.

anyway, letters sent to lsdas need a special form to go along with it, and i believe that form requires information and perhaps a signature from your recommender.  that would be one thing to consider.

secondly, do you know for sure that that letter is a general letter of recommendation?  it might look a little wack to use a letter that starts off with "i highly recommend person x for the study abroad program in korea." 

i am sure there may be a few other complications as well.  is there any way you could contact your recommender and see if he/she has the letter on file, and if not, maybe write you another using the original as a model?
