Emergency LSAC question

Postby tsmalls33 » Wed Nov 27, 2013 1:46 am

I just sent my applications to my top school choices. I assumed that when I labeled my letter of recommendations "for all law schools" that they would automatically be sent. Apparently, this is not the case and it must be manually changed. Because there was no prompt for LORs at the time of sending the apps, I did not attach them when I checked everything out. I just when in and marked the LORs for the schools I wanted, but it was after I already checked out.

Will LSAC send the LORs?

Yes you are fine. As long as you assigned them at any point, they will be sent.

I didn't think LSAC would allow an app to be submitted if the school requires one or more LORs and the minimum required number of LORs haven't been assigned to the app.

You're fine. You can still assign the letters after you submit.

I did this last cycle.

All the schools for which I've checked say that they take extra LORs assigned after the initial application submission in weekly updates generated by LSAC on Mondays. (This information shows up when you go to assign LORs to schools). So, yes, they'll get the letters within a week.
