Mail Sealed Envelope of Home Country LoRs!

Hello,

My LoRs from my home country are sealed in an envelope. They do not yet have an attached cover letter or DSF. Is it OK if I put the sealed envelope in another envelope along with the Cover letter and DSF?
The Cover letter indicates that you have to clip the cover letter in front of the LoR and I am waiving my right to seeing the LoR.


Thanks!

If you are waiving your rights then you should not have the LoRs in your hand! The letter writers should send them directly to ERAS.

Thanks! Well I haven't opened the sealed envelope. But you have a point. I may have to ask for new LORs made.

Don't forget to send them the coversheet and the DSF to attach them to each and every LoR and they then can send them to ERAS.
