What exactly is a "school-specific" letter?
« on: October 17, 2008, 05:31:46 PM »
I know what it technically is.  Stanford says it prefers "school specific" letters, but what exactly does this entail?  The two professors who wrote me letters didn't attend Stanford, so what could they meaningfully add to their letter that is specific to Stanford? 

Someone explain please.
