Question About Specific LOR Forms

Postby lawhaze » Tue Jul 19, 2011 6:48 pm

I will be applying to schools during the upcoming cycle and an obvious desire is to have all of my applications completed as soon as possible. I do not want the LORs to hold me up, so I have already contacted four recommenders and have everything ready to hand over to them so they can begin the process. However, I have read that certain schools have specific LOR forms that must be filled out and submitted with the LSAC form and recommendation. Does that mean that I will have to wait until applications are available on September 1 to access these school-specific forms before I can give my recommenders all of the necessary paperwork?

Thanks in advance!

No, most of these forms, except Northwestern's CPE professional evaluation, are just substitutes for the LSAC form.

However, it looks like NU changed their website today to reflect the 2012-2013 cycle and only requires the CPE for the accelerated JD program.

Get your LoRs now. No need to wait for specialized forms.
