    You should send it right away since PharmCAS has specific questions your references need to answer. I think the whole thing is a questionarre anyways. You don't want them having to do it twice.

    Both. Your references will upload your LORs electronically.

    I don't understand. Are the professors supposed to fill out the questions on pharmCAS and do a separate LOR?

    No, Pharmcas will send an email with a link to the electronic letter of reference. You will only need to submit one electronically not paper.

    No, the LOR part should be included with the questionaire when PharmCAS sends your professor that link.
