No More Faxing LORs?

Postby hemm » Mon Aug 16, 2010 9:17 am

I've read the topics on faxing letters of recommendation to LSAC for faster processing. I was planning on doing this for my LORs, but when I was checking out the redesigned LSAC site I ran across this:

"Can the recommender fax the letter to LSAC?

No, a faxed image is not clear enough to be added to your file."

from here: https://os.lsac.org/Release/Help/FAQs.aspx (You can't follow that link; you have to log into your account and it's the FAQ in the LOR section)

Is this new for this cycle? Has anyone talked to LSAC about this?

That was last cycle though.. I think this was added just yesterday :cry:

Anyone have any more info on this?? I have one last LOR that I was depending on being faxed since the recommender is being a bit slow.....

I just called LSAC and they said that it is ok to fax them.
