Reapplicants - New LoRs?

Postby El_Bee_Oh » Tue Sep 06, 2016 9:06 pm

I applied and was accepted to a few schools three years ago, but ended up withdrawing to work for a few years instead. What is the recommended protocol for letters of rec in this situation? Should I reuse the same ones from last time (both from professors)? Or should I get two new ones from people I work with? Is it too much if I submit all four?

I'd use the old ones and maybe get a work one. nothing wrong with reusing LORs, but a new PS is recommended.

LOR re-use is fine. However, get a new PS and LSAT score (as well as update your resume). I talked with two different T1 adcomms about this and that is what I was told.
