Must I Use LSDAS for my LORs?
« on: October 15, 2007, 11:22:22 AM »
It seems that all of my recommenders prefer to forward the letters to me rather than sending them to LSAC. Is this a problem? Do schools generally prefer letters sent through LSDAS?

I think you have to use LSDAS.

It will make your life much much much easier to send them to LSAC. Make sure your recommenders also follow the instructions provided for them on the LSAC form as well.

There are specific instructions about this on the LSAC form - it's pretty simple.

Have your recommenders send the letters to you in sealed envelopes with their signature across the seal. Then, stick those envelopes in a larger envelope and send it all to LSAC.

In response to your overall question, though, there is no requirement to use the LSAC service for most schools - you can generally send letters directly to the school.
