Question LORs on paper letterhead?

Hey guys,
I'm new to this forum through search...
Ive been going through threads found them very helpful so finally decided to join in. Promise to give back when I'm done with this process...It is truly grueling dealing with all the stressors together..
Really need help right now...
so..My attendings have given me the LORs that are on their paper letter heads.
My question is do they have to type it on a word file with their letter head ?
Or do I scan the paper LOR and save it as PDF?
This question has been really bothering me for a while and I still have CK to take!
Thank you so much! And good luck with all your endevors, we can do this together, we've come so far..

Scan the paper into PDF and upload it in your OASIS.

Thanks! Do I do this even if I want to waive my right to view the letter?

One more thing, so now that the LORs are already signed by the Attending I dont have anything to do with them anymore?Because I need to go to be in another state for a different rotation and wont have a way to get in touch with them..
Thanks a lot!!

If you want to waive your rights then the letter writer should upload the letter via the AAMC LoR Portal, you should not upload it.

You can contact your letter writers via email and phone, you don't have to meet them for the LoR matters.

I recently saw this post.

My Professors from india have written it on paper letterhead. And i am waving my rights for the Lor.
So can i just ask them to scan the lettrhead into a pdf version and upload it via Lor Portal.

Please let me know if i am right.

If you waive your rights:
Go to MyERAS on AAMC>Documents>LOR>Identify LOR writers>Finalize them>Generate Letter request>Send it to the LOR writer. The letter has instructions for LOR writer to upload your LOR

If you do not waive your rights:
Go to MyERAS on AAMC>Documents>LOR>Identify LOR writers>Finalize them
Go to OASIS>Upload Scanned copy of LOR>Wait for 2 weeks for it to appear in ADTS page of MyERAS
Once available on ADTS, LOR can be seen when you select any program and assign them
