One of mine got mailed Thursday the 14th and still hasn't shown up. It's starting to make me nervous.

Give it a couple weeks, and keep in mind that you submitted it while they are working on LSAT grading, etc.

FYI: Faxing usually only takes a couple days. Mailing can take up to about 2 1/2 weeks.

if we can assume they didn't overnight it or put any special things in the letter like an animal or a plant and also that no one disrupts, steals, or destroys the letter, then we can guess it will be received by LSAC in about a week.

then consider that LSAC is being inundated from professors and professionals across the country and world with letters of recommendation, then they need to process all of those, link those in w/ the correct applicant account number. so give it another week.

basically, give it 2 weeks.

If I am already done with my applications should I go ahead and submit them or should I wait for LSAC to receive the LORs before submitting? For schools like NYU which only require one should I wait (because I really want them to have both before they start reviewing)?

I just got one of my LORs in the mail today from LSAC, with a note saying that it didn't come with the LSAC form, and therefore can't be processed. So now I have to print and sign a new form and mail it back to LSAC myself.

I'm baffled on two counts--I have a hard time believing that the LOR writer didn't include the form (he's not a flake! Although I will ask him) and if they were obviously able to figure out which applicant the letter was written for to mail it to me, why can't they just add the stupid thing to my LSAC account anyway?? Since I have now SEEN the stupid thing and have it in my possession, it doesn't matter whether I sign the form giving up my rights or not!

i think you should wait. the school will just see an incomplete file w/o the LORs so they might not even look at them. and like you said w/ the NYU situation, you want them to have both. it wouldn't be good if they just went ahead on one of them and made the decision right?
