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.
Break down the letter into short, but specific, paragraphs. Don’t ramble, but do flesh out your key points. Try to keep it at one page, covering the various aspects of their recommendation in brief, specific detail.
