Fax LOR?

Postby caminante » Tue Sep 27, 2011 5:46 pm

Hey, I saw a few posts from a couple years ago saying that it was easier and faster for LORs to be sent via fax. I don't see anything about that on LSAC's website now. Does anyone know if this still works and/or what the fax number is?

The official LSAC stance is that it's "not recommended" since the faxed barcodes sometimes don't read as well, but I've never heard of anyone actually having a problem with this. Go ahead and do it.

Fax number is on the website. I faxed all of mine last year without ever sending a hardcopy and it worked perfectly. Just check your LSAC account to make sure it gets posted.

Does this mean that if I have them faxed they will still need to mail them as well? Would my applications be considered complete when the fax is received?
