rec letter question

Postby O.J. » Thu Nov 10, 2016 3:05 am

If I'm applying for Fall 2018, over a year away, is it ok to use a rec. letter I just received recently, or does LSAC want the letters to fall in a certain time window?

It's from a volunteer job I just left, so I need the employer to write it now, instead of asking him to remember me a year from now.

ok, thanks!

So schools don't look at the date of the rec letter?

I don't know the answer to this but fwiw, some people on here have used an LOR from 2 or 3 years prior to applying and had no problem.

It's not that they don't look; it's that they don't care.
