Recommendation letter description

Postby jrha3 » Sun Dec 14, 2014 3:45 am


I was wondering if not having recommendation letter descriptions exactly accurate would be a problem. For example, I had a rec letter specifically for georgetown, and for the description in the LSAC form I put: For Georgetown Law School instead of For Georgetown University Law Center. Does this matter?

Nope, I don't think it matters. Good luck!

The descriptions are just for you, so you know what letter is supposed to go where. They don't see them. As long as it tells you that it's supposed to go to Georgetown, you're golden.

Actually, schools DO see your descriptions because they receive both the LOR form (with the writer's info and description of letter) and actual letter. [] Still, I don't think it matters much for you, OP. Just be more careful next time.
