Hello I am a reapplicant and I am still waiting on my letter of recommendation writer to update my letter of rec from last year... She has not been responding to my calls and so I am wondering whether I should just send in last year's letter, because I have all my other materials ready. Is this hurting my chances, by waiting for an updated letter?

You're really going to want new letters. Everything should be updated.

I am a reapplicant too, and among 4 letters I have only 3 have been updated from last year. I think unless you are using all the same letters from previous letter, you should be fine.

And the letter being re-used should be 1 year old at most with solid content I think.

Ahh okay thank you! I will submit my letter from last year, before I wait too long for her to even reply... It just bothers me cause I gave her a good window of time yet she has not responded when all she needs to do is like add a paragraph and change the dates.
Thank you! Good luck to you! :)

How do you resend letters from last year? Did you have it saved on interfolio or something?
