LSAC Report Sent Before 2 LORs Assigned?

Postby dibs » Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:45 am

A few of my LSAC reports have been distributed to schools that "require" 2 LORs to be assigned through LSAC. I have asked these law schools previously if my application would be reviewed before the LORs are received. Their answer was that the LSAC report would not even be sent before the LORs are assigned so the question is moot.

There's obviously something wrong here. I've pinged my schools with the question and am waiting a response. Has anything had a similar experience?

Does your status checker show that they have the report? LSAC website is screwy. I went complete at a few schools before LSAT showed that my report was sent. As a matter of fact some are still not showing up and I have been complete since monday. Your reports are not supposed to be "LSAC complete" without LORs.

But even if it was sent out, schools won't consider you complete until they have the required LORs so you will just be incomplete with the report added to your file.

Some schools have a report sent to them when you submit and each time a letter is added (see Emory). Why? No idea, but I wouldn't worry if they sent the report to your school. They should send another when your LOR is received.
