Hi hoping for some insight...
One of my old OT supervisors who agreed to signing off on my LOR has asked that I write it for her. Is this a bad idea?
Would that even work, I’m not sure how the OTCAS LOR is formatted
Is it just a normal LOR or a form asking specific questions regarding the candidate, etc? ahh

I went to an info session yesterday for a grad program and the admissions counselor said the OTCAS evaluation/LOR was a series of about 10(ish) questions that the person rates you on. There's then an option for the evaluator to upload a letter that they have written, but I don't believe it's required. Hopefully, that will be less time intensive for your supervisor and mean that you're not put in an awkward situation.

I wrote 2 of my LOR, one for a college professor and the other for an OT supervisor. I don't know how OTCAS is set up. I e-mailed the letters to the evaluators and as far as I know, they were able to submit them.
