11Q13 Posted January 3, 2010 Share Posted January 3, 2010 (edited) So a friend of mine (not me I promise) just told me a very smart but probably very dishonest way to get the best recommendations. She's doing all her apps by mail. Some of the schools she's applying to require 3 LORs, some require 4. Rather than bothering to figure out which require what number she just requested all the profs to write a rec for all the schools. So she'll have 4 recs for all of them meaning some she won't send. 1 recommender was nice enough to let her read the recommendation, and there is one she is positive wrote her a stellar rec, meaning there's only 2 she doesn't know about for sure. Would it be a one way ticket to hell if she opened the extra recs to see which one she would want to use as her third recommender to the schools that only require 3? I was frankly so impressed that she figured out she could do it that I thought I would pose the question to you guys.
