Admissions Question: October 14th
Q: Does the Admissions committee prefer letters of recommendation to be sent directly to law schools or to LSDAS?
A: At most law schools, your letters can be sent in whichever way is most convenient to you and the people writing the letters. Usually the easiest is the LSDAS because everything is sent to one central location and letters can then be directed to schools from there. Also, LSDAS will keep letters on file for 5 years so they’ll be there in the future in case you end up reapplying or applying later than you anticipated. While it is okay for your recommenders to send their letters directly to Lewis & Clark Law School, some other schools may require that they be sent through LSDAS.
