Additional LoR

Postby eshort » Fri Jan 22, 2010 2:45 pm

Is there any sort of consensus about what sending an additional LoR after you have gone complete and/or while you are still marked as incomplete (but everything else has been weeks past sent) will do to your application?
I am considering sending an additional LoR, but probably won't if it will hold up my applications.
Any thoughts?

It won't hold up your applications. If you've gone complete, then the law school simply gets an updated report. If you're still incomplete, then the law school hasn't requested their report from LSAC yet, so they'll get an updated one when they do.

How many LORs is overkill?

I'm not sure anyone is an authority on this, but I would think that 2 more than are required is too many (unless they require 0, then 3 is too many). Get at the requirement or 1 over and that should be more than sufficient. Just my opinion.

for most of the schools (in the LSAC menu) they have a minimum req as well as a suggested amount. So I'd say go off that. Submitting 4 when they recommend only 2 seems like a little bit of overkill.

I talked to one school and they said it doesn't affect your report or app, they just add it to your file when it comes in... seems like that should be the case for most schools.
