Hofstra Recommendation Letters

Postby lily1221 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 4:58 pm

Does anyone know how many recommendations Hofstra will take? I have 3 that I can submit, but not sure if they only take 2. I read somewhere that they take 2 only and then the site generalizes it and says all LOR. Can I submit 3??

I only sent in two. I was more confused by the personal statement. On the website, it says no more than 500 words. But on the application, it says no more than two pages but does not mention a word limit.

Did you notice this too? And for that matter, Hofstra, get on your grind and have less ambiguity... :)

I noticed the exact thing. It seems that the website is not updated at all making it more of a guessing game as to what you can/should submit.

Yea mine was 951 words because I didn't read the website until after I submitted. And I had to finagle the margins to fit two pages :mrgreen: . But now I feel better.

That would be really nice if you could let us know. It's just so unclear as to amount of LOR and word limit for PS. Did anyone notice that it also says you can apply to both programs PT and FT but there is no option on actual app to do this??
