Old LORs in file

Postby postn0bills » Tue Nov 08, 2011 3:38 pm

I was in the process of applying to law school a year ago, but decided to forgo it for a year to retake the LSAT and apply this cycle. I had at that point already compiled my LORs and transcripts for my CAS file. My question is, should I contact those who gave me the letters of recommendation to have them re-date the letters and resubmit to LSAC so they are more current? Or will it not make much of a difference to adcomms that they were submitted/written in December 2010? If it is better to resubmit, how do I go about doing this? The LSAC web site didn't appear to have an option to edit or resubmit LORs. I will call LSAC if need be, but just curious if anyone knows anything about this. Thanks guys!

LSAC will keep your letters for up to 5 years, and it shouldn't matter that they are a year old. Adcomms understand that people need to defer/put it off for a year, and as long as the letters are still relevant it shouldn't be a problem. My letters are from 2009 and 2010.
