    How to ask for LORs during COVID-19?

    Hi everyone, as the title may suggest I was wondering if anyone could advise on how to ask for letters during the ongoing pandemic. Prepandemic, the ideal situation was to sit down with your writer and hand over a resume/CV. Is this still advised when asking professors from undergrad for a...

    D.O. Schools number of letters of evaluation?

    Hello everyone, I've been doing some research about the AACOMAS process and I would appreciate some clarification about LORs. I know different schools have different requirements for letters but it seems like 1 DO, 2 science, 1 nonscience letter should cover all of my bases. I also would...

    LOR Question- Submitting from AMCAS

    Hey all. So, I'm using Interfolio Dossier Deliver to send letters to AMCAS. However, I have also noticed that AMCAS has an option where you can choose which letters to send to which schools. This isn't really something I'm worried about, as I intend to send all of my letters to all the schools...

    Sent my application to UCSF, but one of my letters wasn't submitted by the deadline

    I finished everything in the application, but one of my professors did get around to finishing my last Letter of Rec before the deadline. Are they just going to toss my application or should I hound my professor to submit the letter ASAP?

    Using Interfolio for letters of rec

    I have been collecting my letters of rec on Interfolio and I plan to use that to submit the letters to AADSAS. I know it works by Interfolio generating a unique email address for every writer and you enter that in the place of the person's actual email address. My question is, by doing this...

    Prep for next cycle, LOR

    It looks like, according to ADEA's website, LORs do not carry over from your previous application. Does anyone have experience with this? How did you go about obtaining letters for when you re-applied especially if you are no longer in school? Of course and advice is greatly appreciated.

    Letters of Reccomendation

    This May sound like a dumb question, but for the AADSAS application to dental school, do you have to wait until May 15 to have your letters of recommendation submitted? That is the only date I can find online for when the new cycle “soft-opens”, but it seemed kind of late to me. Just wanted to...

    Is six Letters of Recommendation too few or good enough?

    So I have 2 from MD's (one whom I've shadowed and the other who knows me super well for a long time), a DO whom I have shadowed, my Oral Communications professor who specializes in Medical Communication, and two of my Chemistry profs who know me very well. If 6 is too many, who should I leave out?

    Despite reminding a letter writer twice, she still submitted it without a signature, is there a way that she can resubmit with a signature, has anyone run into this before?

    Letter of evaluation

    May be a stupid question, but does the usual required letter of evaluation for dental schools have to be from a general dentist, or could it be from someone such as an oral surgeon with a DMD degree?

    I'm applying to schools through both TMDSAS and AMCAS and am planning to use Interfolio to request my LoE/LoR.

    Letters of recommendation Help! Accepted vs. completed?

    Hey guys, All 3 of my letters have finally been submitted. However, 1 is accepted while the other 2 are listed as completed. Any clue what the diff is? Does AADSAS have to process it or something? The 1 accepted was submitted a month ago or so.
