Are my LOR's too old?

Postby infinite_jest » Fri Sep 20, 2013 3:56 pm

I received a BA in 2009 and an MA in 2010. During the fall of 2009, I asked two professors to write LOR's. LSAC received them. Nonetheless, I've been working full-time for the past 3.5 years. Anyone have an idea if the "oldness" of these letters will be a problem when I apply? Or will it not matter?

(For what it's worth: I assume the LOR's were positive. I took multiple courses with both professors, and got along with both of them quite well.)

You might want to get one LOR from someone more recent and submit it with one of the old ones. I'm sure it doesn't really matter though.

They'll suffice. LORs are good for five years and aren't really that important to begin with.

No, they are not too old. They're fine for five years.
