    Important Question about LORs

    Advertisements



    Hey Everyone!

    I was wondering if the LOR's have to be sealed and signed at the back? This may seem like a dumb question but I received many copies of my LOR from my biology professor about a year ago and she didnt seal them in envelopes but just signed each one and I think she is on vacation because I can't get a hold of her.. Do you think this would be a problem when I apply? Let me know what you guys think.. Thanks!

    An Official Letter of Recommendation / Committee Packet needs to arrive to AUA in a sealed envelope from the school. This doesn't mean you take the letter you have and seal it in your own envelope. From the school. If your professor(s) or committee wish to hand you the Official Letter / Packet and you mail it to us, this is fine.

    So Mr. Tipton, does this mean I have to go to my school and have it put in an official envelope with it signed at the back? is this is the case, i realy hope i can get a hold of my professor. =/
