LOR Problem (I hate you, LSAC)

Postby flip21 » Mon Jun 11, 2012 4:43 pm

Just finished all my transfer apps but still waiting for one LOR to "process." My first deadline is Friday. I've already "assigned" the LOR to all the applications but it still says that LSAC hasn't received it yet. If it comes down to the wire and I submit the application, will the school receive the LOR when it processes or am I screwed?

They should receive it when it processes. If you haven't already, faxing LORs proved to be much more efficient than mailing them.

ETA: In my experiences

I faxed in a LOR this morning and it was posted a few hours ago. Faxing is the way to go!

I've called at least Stanford and Berkeley, and both are OK with LORS arriving after the deadline. I just had profs mail them directly to the schools. Of course, as with last round I'm pretty geographically limited so I only had two schools on the list...
