It doesn't matter. Put a name that will help YOU remember which letter it is. Schools won't even see it. I just titled mine with the name of the writer.

The letter description you enter will be printed on your Letter of Recommendation form. Law schools will receive both your LOR form and the letter, so write your description carefully. Examples: Use "for all law schools" if you want to assign the letter to multiple schools; use "for X law school" if it is intended for one specific school; use "for schools with (health) law programs" if intended for schools with specialized programs.

sounds like the schools do see it

LSAC FAQ Section wrote:
"The purpose of the description on the letter of recommendation form is to guide you in assigning letters to law schools.

A letter that you plan to send to multiple schools might be called “for all law schools.”
A letter intended for one specific school could be described as “for X law school.”
A letter for schools with certain specialized programs could be described as “for schools with (health) law programs.”


May I suggest "for schools that want 3 LOR's"?

LOR--MJordan
LOR--LBird
LOR--MJohnson

This is how they will show up on your page when you choose which ones to assign to where. Just do it this way and it will be easy once LSAC has them all. You are severiously overthinking this.
