  2. You, your institutions and your letter writers will be assured of the confidentiality and prompt processing of your letters.
  3. If you plan to apply in the future but would like to ask for letters now, the Letter Service will keep your letters on file up to 5 years for grad/med/professional school applicants, and 10 years for educational careers candidates.
