dude, if sending 5 or 10 or 50 LORs makes you happy, go for it.

But when one sees an instruction like "only two [LORs] are expected and required", it's like when a professor says "there is no required length for your term paper" or a dinner host says "stay as long as you want". It's an invitation to apply good judgment.

I think I'll just send three or four.  I'll hold off on sending extra LOR's until I'm waitlisted (if I ever am).  I just kept pressing the topic because I wanted to see how many people agreed that five or more LOR's are excessive.  Thanks for all the advice!
