Retake, Reapply, Year Off: LOR Question

Postby Circlewave » Sat Mar 16, 2013 2:22 pm

So, I'm currently at a 163/3.6x, and I got some decent offers from T1s, but I think I owe it to myself to retake the LSAT and shoot for a bigger scholly or a T14.

When I go to reapply, though, do I need to get new letters of rec from different people? I'm afraid I might have used my two best profs up this year, and the letters were very good, I'm certain, so I'd hate to waste them.

1.) Congrats on your excellent Decision.

2.) No, you can keep them for the life of your Credential Assembly service account. The general consensus is you don't need to even think about getting new LOR's until they are several years old. If you have significant work experience, it can also be helpful to add a letter from your employer.

Good Luck.
