i had always heard the recommended age of the letter should be no older than one year. if it is more, have your writer submit an updated letter. But that's just what the LOR service at my school says. I don't know straight from the med school.shan1997 said:anyone else
Make sure you read the individual school requirements carefully... Baylor specifies that more than one year old are absolutely unacceptable. I haven't seen this anywhere else, yet, but I'm trying to use a 2-year-old one, so I'm being pretty careful.shan1997 said:anyone else

I don't think it's gonna hurt. I didn't get updates because I didn't really interact with those other recommenders during the last year, so it seemed pointless to bug them for an update.
