Can you "Read" an LOR on the LSAC website once it's sent in?

Postby yu9ePUsw » Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:49 pm

I'm unclear whether you can read the entire LOR sent in by someone before you decide to submit it as part of the application on the LSAC website. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

No. Why would you think so?

Well if you, hopefully, waived your rights to see the letter anyway, right?

Absolutely not. That's why they're letters of recommendation. If the writer had to worry about what the receiver thought of the letter, the letters would not reflect his/her true opinion.

I actually didn't waive the right, not even thinking of how it could mess me up. I didn't go to read the letters either- I didn't care.

The answer is no.

Don't you read things before you sign them? Look at the LOR form.
