Anyone else have this problem? Each time the PDF generates, it does this. No barcode, just a bunch of numbers. So annoying!

Use a different browser.

I think I recall this happening to me because I printed it off my computer which was a Mac. I'm pretty sure LSAC said it was fine with the numbers and not the barcode but you may want to call them to check.

Correct, use IE.

But, it doesn't matter. I submitted mine that way and they were fine.

Better answer: don't use a browser to read PDFs.

I had the same problem when opening LOR forms in Preview on Mac. When I opened the PDFs in Adobe Reader, the barcode appeared normally.

I think this is some sort of widespread conspiracy to exclude liberals from the legal profession, since they are more likely to be Mac users!


Okay, maybe not. :P
