Waitlist LOR question

Postby Rlabo » Thu May 16, 2013 4:28 pm

Hey guys,

Quick question about submitting additional LORs to a school one's waitlisted at. Is sending more than one typically considered overkill or is 2-3 fine? For Penn they clearly stated they only wanted one, but didn't see much of instruction from other schools. For reference, the schools I'm waitlisted at are all in the lower half of the t14.

Quality > Quantity.

I think maybe one more would be ok, but anything more than that would be too much.

My point is that if you're sending in many (mediocre) letters of recommendations, it probably wouldn't help your case much. But if you are sending in a few additional (great) letters of recommendations, then it would help, I suppose.
