FWIW, I think it's stupid that Stanford likes tailored letters. Tailored letters are stupid. Basically all it shows is that the person asked really nicely and their professor/letter-writer was very, very generous and agreed to write a special letter so Stanford could feel all coddled and loved.
For me, Stanford is my top choice. It's also a reach, so if they want to be coddled and loved -- then I shall coddle and love them.
Well, that's fine for you lucky bastards who know SLS alums
In all honesty, I would have if I had known any alums who could have written a good, targeted letter. SLS is my first choice as well so I'm willing to jump through just about any hoops necessary. However, getting a letter out of one of my profs was a huge deal due to circumstances and asking for a targeted letter just seemed too much of an additional imposition given those circumstances. He wrote me an amazing letter though, so I can't complain.
