Since many of us did not get in this year, we will be trying again next year. What is the protocol for re-using LOR? Can you use previous ones? Do you need all new ones? Would it hurt your app to have some of the same ones as before? Also, how do you break the news that you didn't get in to people that recommended you, while asking if they'll recommend you again next year? Sort of an embarrasing situation! I'm not sure of the etiquette in this situation.
