    Okay, so I understand the whole online application is somewhat new to the entire application this year. I am in PA13 District with Senator Casey, Senator Toomey, and Congress Schwartz. Some of the letters of recommendations (3) need to be uploaded directly onto the online application while others are mailed to the respective office.

    Has anyone had experience with this? I'm quite confused with this process. What should the formatting look like? How should the letters be mailed? Etc Etc

    Thanks for the help!

    If memory serves correctly, while the application is completed online, the letters of recommendation are mailed to Sen. Toomey and uploaded as attachments to Sen. Casey's application (there is a link that you will use for each document to be uploaded and attached - you will need to have the letters scanned and emailed to you or provided to you in hard copy for you to scan and upload). The format is a traditional letter. The directions for Sen. Toomey are on his website:

    All students must use our online application. Third party materials such as your official transcript and SAT/ACT scores can be attached to your online application OR mailed to our Allentown office. Your three letters of recommendation must be mailed to the Allentown office and must come directly from your school or from the source of the recommendation. Please DO NOT send any part of your application to any other offices. The deadline for submission of your application is October 4, 2013. No application will be considered if it is incomplete as of 11:59 p.m. on October 4, 2013. Late applications or applications received at other offices will not be considered.

    To mail your transcript, SAT/ACT scores, certification form and letters of recommendation, please use the following address only:

    U.S. Senator Pat Toomey
    ATTN: Jess Kemmerer
    1150 S. Cedar Crest Blvd., Suite 101
    Allentown, PA 18103
    Phone: (610) 434-1444
    Fax: (610) 434-1844

    Senator Casey's application also has the directions for submission with the online application. Finally, Sen. Toomey's office sent out an email last year regarding the submission of materials, essays, etc.
    with poor grammar, and errors. Take heed.

    Thanks for the info!

    1. Do I upload all three docs in one attachment or 3 seperate emails?
    2. What if the recommendations were typed and emailed to me? Do they need to be hand written?

    Thanks again.

    Instructions for the NOM process can vary from year to year and by the indivdual requesting them. I would read and follow the current directions you can find at the website for those individuals.

    I seriously doubt with today's state of technology, that any MOC expects/requires handwritten letters of recommendations.
