Can I have my LOR packet sent to schools I'm applying to before I've completed and return their secondary applications? My reasoning is that I want my premed office to process all of them at once, instead of having to go back after each application to request it.

I would guess that it would be okay to send them when your working on the secondary, so that they arrive about the same time...I wouldn't want to send them when I haven't received the secondary yet.

I'd be very careful, though. Many schools explicitly indicate that they can not accept LOR before the secondaries are sent in. LOR usually just take about a week. I'd make very sure that I was about to hit submit before ordering LORs.

Thanks, I'll wait until after I submit secondaries to send LORs.
