Notification?
« on: September 20, 2007, 03:56:02 PM »
Will LSAC send me an email telling me when each recommendation is received like they did with my transcript?  More importantly, will I be able to tell which particular recommendations have been processed?

Yes, and yes. It will come at the end of the day (around midnight-ish, in my experience) that it's processed on.

Note that you can always check this on LSAC online.

Thanks.  I figured that's how it would be.  I just have nothing to check on LSAC yet because I just approached my recommendors a few weeks ago, so I was just curious about what I should expect.

You must be higher on their e-mail list.  ;)  Mine always come at 3:42 am.  I noticed that it was processed though before I got the e-mail.

Actually, I just checked, and mine came at 4:30 AM, lol. That might show you just how off my sleep schedule has been lately.

In my experience, not always. More than once I have waited and waited for a notification only to go to the site to see they have had my transcript/LOR in the system for several days. This has been covered before, and others claim to have experienced the same thing.

ditto here.  however, if 2 weeks pass and you don't get any notification, nor does an LOR show up on LSAC, contact them.

LSAC sent me notification this morning at 4:30 a.m. for a letter of rec that I saw posted last night.  FWIW, my professor mailed the letter on 9/19, it was received by LSAC on 9/21 according to their records, and it appeared on my account yesterday (9/24).

ETA: It was a general letter, and I used a generic recommender form that I filled out myself  by hand.
