You have to send the cover sheets, they will not scan them without the coversheets, that happened with my friend. you have to call them and send the coversheet

My friend tried that with them, but they refused, they asked him to send the coversheets, but that was in August when there was enough time, I don't know now, maybe if you beg them they'll accept

Great news.
So this means that you cannot waive you rights of seeing the LoR but the LoR will be normally scanned and put into your ERAS account.
Am I right?

hi gauri. just wanted to confirm. so if i dont attach a cover letter it is considered equivalent to a NON WAIVED lor right??

just a question : does the letter itself have to specify whether or not it is waived??
