You can ask your letter writers to send the letter directly to the service or upload it whenever they are ready. The letters must be signed and should have an official letterhead. Acceptable letters are then the letters uploaded into the service. You will be able use these letters later on when you actually apply to medical school. These services are secure and they will not allow you to read the letter beforehand.
