LOR for Transfer Apps

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 02, 2015 11:41 am

I would like to obtain a couple of letters of recommendation from professors I had last semester. Should I have them submit the letters directly to LSAC (through the upload process) or can I obtain the letters myself and then send them to any schools I want to transfer to later?

Basically, what's the best way to go about getting letters of recommendation?

Also interested in this. Also, is it the same LSAC account or do you have to make a new one? Completely ignorant when it comes to this process

You use the same LSAC account.
Schools only accept LOR via LSAC.

Note, however, that some schools don't use LSAC for transfers. That said, I think your best bet is asking them to write a letter for you that you can upload to LSAC; you can always come back to them for a letter to a school that doesn't use LSAC.
