Holding onto reccomendations

Holding onto reccomendations
« on: November 26, 2007, 09:02:08 AM »
I'm a professional working in politics.  My plan was to apply this fall, then defer acceptance till 09 so I could work on the presidential election.  I had targeted to get my applications in between mid-Dec. and Jan.  But I know feel that this is too late in the game.  I decided instead to have everything ready for next year so I can get them in in mid Oct.

My question relates to recommenders I have already gotten rolling on this.  Is it okay for them to submit rec's for me to lsac this year even if I don't use them until next year? Or should I tell them to hold off and submit them this spring or summer? For more detail, I have 3 recommenders committed, but only 1 who I know is currently working on it.
