Certificate Back Dated LoRs

I studied in China and i live in India. While doing my internship I took LORs from my interest related departments. Now to get updated LOR do i have to tell my mentor to send a same LOR with new dates Or if my old LOR don't have any date written. So Can i directly sent to ERAS and inform my mentor that may be he will receive call from dean's office. Hope you guys understood what I want to ask.


Thanks in advance

The LoR should be dated, it's a standard practice.

If you send an undated LoR, PDs might not accept it as LoR.

Both. The dates you did the experience and the date of signature.
