Title: LOR personalization??
Post by: SouthernBelle1L on January 26, 2009, 01:52:08 PM
Its a no brainer that on my personal statement I need to tailor parts of it to each school, so that they do not think that I am submitting the same generic words to every program. But does the same idea apply to letters of recommendation? I am asking busy, respected individuals to send out carefully crafted statements to at least 10 programs. Are they really expected to take even more time to fill out a different recommendation for every program (and hence also risk that they mix up school names)? Or can they print and sign 10 copies of the same document, and focus on just getting them off in time? ;o)

Same statement for each school, unless the recommender has something to say to a particular school, for example if the recommender is an alum.
