sending recommendation letter to grad school

<p>How do u send rec letter to grad school? Using hardcopies by snail mail or softcopy thru email? I have got this softcopy letter from my prof which is still unsigned as the prof is in his home country in the europe, it would be very hassle for him to actually sign and mail it to me by snail mail. Although it is stated in the letter the grad school admission committee can contact him directly if they wants a confirmation about me. What if the grad school asks for the hardcopy? Anyway, regardless of what, they will still contact the prof directly anyway right?</p>

<p>All the grad schools I applied to had online submission. You'd put down their name and email, and then they would get an email and upload it.</p>
