Harvard disqualification - LOR


Hello, 

Harvard claims that they disqualify candidates who have written their own letters of recommendation. Unfortunately, that is a widespread practice in my country and probably of many others that professors do not give a damn about your application and at best will sign the letter you sent them. How will Harvard know that you participated in the writing of the letter? Do you think that they eg check the metadata of the LOR (they do not accept LORs sent through the LSAC) or contact the professors?. Do they actually disqualify candidates on the basis of the LORs? Thank you.

When you add recommenders for Harvard LLM, they will receive an email from Harvard. They should NOT forward that email to you, as Harvard monitors that email and knows if it has been forwarded to you. They MUST upload the letter themselves to the system and it should NOT be done by you. The letters should be written by recommenders themselves.
