blurry/ugly LoRs from faxing?

Postby armysgt » Fri Feb 01, 2013 2:42 am

Hi all,

I may be thinking this too much, but if my recommender faxed an LoR in, would that result in adcomms receiving bad quality prints?

A lot of faxes I've seen come out pretty ugly and sometimes even illegible, so I was just wondering...any experiences?

Thanks!

You're overthinking it. Literally, you have a million more things to worry about, do not sweat over this.

I was late to applying so told both my professors to fax it (this was like last week). Worked just fine and was processed within the same day... soo much better than mail. I read a lot about faxing vs. mailing on this site, and I'd say the vast majority of the time faxing has no issues. You can always call LSAC to make sure that it came through all right.

And these days emailing is even better.

Yes. Though they will have to make a free online account so I think it depends on how technologically savvy they are (Some of my professors are older so I figured they'd prefer the paper version).

Not to derail. But faxes are still a thing?

Haha yeup (if that was serious). I think every department at my school has a fax machine so it's really easy for professors to fax stuff. I'm assuming this is common.
