How many letters of recommendation do I need? Although it can vary, generally, you will be asked for three letters. We recommend that you send only the number of letters requested. Admissions committees do not have enough time to read extra credential.
Why should I use the Letter Service at the Career Center? If you are applying to more than three schools, or you think you want your letters held for other opportunities (like law school) in the future, you should plan to use the Letter Service. Your letter writers will write one letter and fill out one form, rather than filling out a different form for every application.
