You can do what you want, but it doesn't matter. It's optional, and won't affect anything.

It's been a couple weeks since my last shadowing opportunities...I think I'm going to drop some thank you's in the mail just to keep my name in their heads because I'll be asking for LOR's soon...

one doc said it's easier for me to just write up the LOR and let him embellish...

Not sure how I feel about that.

That's what mine said too. I liked doing it like this since I obviously know myself better than he did and I could be sure to mention all the great stuff I did and how I handled myself.

Problem is, I have absolutely NO experience writing LOR's...

Some of the schools I've noticed have actual forms for the people to fill out...

You might not know how to write an LOR but i'm sure you can write a resume. To mine LOR writers, I submitted a resume and an autobiography. The resume will help them not forget to list anything that you think is really important and the autobiography will allow them to write something that shows they know you on a personal level. Just an idea, hope it helps.

I can easily provide a resume, my transcripts, and a narrative of my life story...but I think it will be tough to write about myself in anything other than the 1st person.

Should be interesting.

Yes, of course. (I'd consider a cake for the office a bit over the top, though, especially if you had no previous relationship with them as a patient.)

You can send them a card. I'm sure they will appreciate it.
