Edit: I've found panicking helps.

One of my recommenders put a letter in the mail August 27th, last week they still didn't have it. I'm convinced that LSAC lost the letter. I e-mailed her appologizing and asked if she could e-mail it and then sent the rest of my recommenders an e-mail form...when she e-mailed it it was processed immediately.

Yeah, when you go to the LOR page on your account there's a print button and an e-mail button and all you have to do is enter in your recommender's e-mail. I sent them a separate e-mail just to let them know what it was and to check their junk mail folder for it if it didn't make it to their inbox.

Do they have to scan their letter with their signature? or they can just upload the word doc?

That I'm not sure of, I would assume there's an electronic signature or something just because I feel like scanning it would be too much work. One of my recommenders told me to check in with her on Friday just to remind her/see if she sent it, I can ask her then (my other recommender is proabably tired of all my e-mails)

They lost one of mine in early September as well. I had my recommender resend it and it was processed within 7 business days. I figure with the volume they are receiving they might lose a few each cycle. If you haven't seen it updated after three weeks maybe just have it resent to be safe?

I'm confused - you're saying the LOR's can be submitted electronically, but this isn't clear to me from the LSAC website. LSAC simply says that when I request an email, they send my recommender the LOR form (the one I would otherwise print out and give to the recommender). This doesn't necessarily mean that the recommender is then able to submit electronically. Can someone fill me in? Does the LSAC email include instructions telling the recommender how to return electronically?

It e-mails them the form the form and there must be some way they can upload the letter and LSAC recieves it that way. I'm not sure of how the entire process works (i've actually been thinking about sending a form to myself on the e-mail I use for junk mail just to see) but after I hit the send e-mail button my recommender was able to get the letter in that way. I got an e-mail from LSAC saying they recieved and elaluation and a letter about 2 minutes before she e-mailed me to say she had sent everything in.

Found the answer on the LSAC website:
Choose the option that is the most convenient for you and your recommender. Print - recommender mails the letter with the form you print; E-mail - recommender uploads the recommendation electronically at Applicant References website. (The recommender will need to create an account on that website. Instructions will be in the e-mail that LSAC sends to the recommender.)
