I'm getting a letter from a partner who I worked under at my summer firm. Should I have him give me 100 or letters in sealed envelopes, or should I give his secretary my list of judges and have her mail them separately?
Can you ask one of your recommenders if you could have the partner send the letter to his/her assistant so they can be packaged and mailed together?
I like that idea. The only issue is that my school has made it very clear that they won't "process" outside letters. I think my profs wouldn't mind, but the main administrative assistant who does the mail merge and sends them out would probably say no. But I'll give it a shot.

And you're just trying to line up the timing with your own personal mailing? Glad to hear someone else has taken this approach. Thanks!
