Do law schools see the LOR form or just the letter?

Postby iwanta170 » Mon Aug 16, 2010 10:18 pm

I made a spelling mistake on the form where you enter your recommender's contact information. I abbreviated Department to Dpt. instead of Dept. It was a stupid mistake. Do law schools see this form? If so, will LSAC fix it if I call them tomorrow?

Law schools do see the form, according to LSAC, but I doubt that they pay attention to it or would notice/care about this mistake.

Dpt. is an accepted abbreviation for Department -- or at least it is according to http://www.aresearchguide.com/comabb.html

You are fine bro. Don't worry about it.

The much more common abbreviation is Dept though

My dad pointed out the mistake without me saying anything. Is there any way to change it?

Well, now you've really done it. You can kiss any hope you had of T14 goodbye.

Seriously: LAW SCHOOLS WILL NOT NOTICE OR CARE. If they read LORs at all, I guarantee they skip over the page that is the same for each of the THOUSANDS of applications they read and go straight to the letter (you know, the part that matters.)

I promise you: this is as insignificant as it gets. You're fine!

You're not going to get into U. Chi with that attitude.

Calm down. You're fine.

Yes they see the form, but I hardly think anyone will notice or care.
