Hi everyone.

I was planning on applying to Medical school this cycle, but after some personal issues have arisen I have decided to hold off a year. Unfortunately, the same thing happened last year and I decided not to apply after already having two of my professors (1 science and 1 nonscience) submit letters for me.

That being said, I will definitely be applying next year (2025-2026 cycle). Is it a major issue if two of my letters are dated from 2023? I haven't maintained contact much with either professor, so I am afraid they will not reply to my email request to redate and resubmit the letter.

Thanks in advance!
