LOR question
« on: October 16, 2007, 10:12:15 AM »
Does it matter if we enter a recommender's info into the LSAC website? What I mean is, I printed out an LOR form and down at the bottom it has those blocks side by side where the recommender can write in his information. But if you go to LOR on LSAC.org and you click 'Add recommender' you can type his info in, and then the LOR form will have all the recommender's info and no blocks. I guess this is just easier for the recommender, but is it necessary?

I doubt it's necessary. I printed out a blank one for my LOR from my volunteer work becuase I wasn't sure which one of the supervisors would be writing it (there are only two of them, and I know them both well, so it doesn't matter for me personally, but I didn't want things to go wrong on teh LSAC end.)

I only prefilled in the info for 1 LOR... they all turned out ok.

Although, it MIGHT make it go faster if you do it in advance. But I am only guessing here.

Also, should I provide my recommender with a self-addressed stamped envolope addressed to LSAC? Or should I provide a self-addressed stamped envelope addressed to me? It would seem that the first option would be much quicker, if he just sent it right off to LSAC. What has everyone else done?

My recommender just gave them to me (he did more than one) and I stuck them in a fedex envelope and sent them off.

I gave my recommender fed-ex envelopes addressed to LSAC. You keep the tracking number and they can mail it.

Are you talking about the big fed ex cardboard envelopes where you tear off a strip of the cardboard to open it?

well, honestly, I used Canada Post Expresspost, but I didn't think that applied to you. I imagine it's sort of the same thing. Any package delivery service that you can track but that doesn't need a signature on delivery.

I didn't think of Fedex - but that's a good idea so you can track whether they have sent it.
