Question LOR -need help

hi guys, i have a query about the LORs. As there is a rule about personal statement- that it shouldn't be copied from anywhere, should be in our own original words.. Is that rule applicable to LOR too???? Bcz in my college professors kinda have a standard format for everyone, they might change few sentences here and there and may move paragraphs up and down.. will that work??

I m really worried bcz i already have these LORs and i dont know, they are valid or not?? should i get new LORs ?? what should i do?

please help i could really use some guidance.. i m still taking exams,, so i dont have much time. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated, thank you in advance...

My 2 cents, it's ok if they are standardized, but these non-US letters will have a low impact in your application. However, if it's your only option, than provide beforehand your letter writters with a neat personal statement so they can personalize your letter or it would also be ok for you to offer them to write a couple of paragraphs about you.
