I posted this same question on the pre-allo board, but no one responded. Hopefully you guys will have more experience with this :confused:



Alright, so after receiving my mediocre MCAT scores last night, I've decided to put off applying until next year. I figure in this time I can improve the GPA, get some more medical experience, and maintain whatever's left of my sanity

Anyways, I've already collected letters of recommendation from a few professors, but I guess I won't be using them. When I apply next year, can/should I use some of the letters I had written this year, or should I just gather a whole next batch of them next year. Does it look bad to send out letters that were written a year ago?

Well it looks like this question has been beat to death, I probably should have scrolled this board first ;)

After reading those threads, I still don't know what to think. Do adcoms care about how recent the letters are? If they do, should I just ask my letter writters to save copies of what they have so I can use them next year?
