    For those of you who have applied to med schoool more than once, did you have to update your letters of rec. each time? If I end up having to apply a second time, will I have to ask the people who wrote my letters to send another one with a more current date on it?

    if you're applying again, you'll be expected to add newer rec letters to serve as updates to what you've been doing since you applied the first time. but you can send the same letters that you sent the first time as well. i don't know how your school does it, but my undergrad school had a letter service and will keep my college rec letters on file for the rest of time--i just had to ask them to send the letter file out again. but you'll need at least one new letter, from your employer (if you've been working) or from another professor (if you've gone back to school), etc.
