Letters of Rec: General vs. Targeted

Letters of Rec: General vs. Targeted
« on: July 08, 2007, 02:21:38 PM »
I'm a 27 year old applying for Fall 08 ... been out of school since 2002 ... I'm sending a letter of rec from a former manager with my current employer and an administrator at the college i attended that I worked closely with ... neither of them attended any of the schools that I will be applying to ... that being said ... is there any thought as to whether me having them submit the general letter of rec to all of the schools vs. a targeted letter of rec to each school has any real benefit or not for me?  Thanks!

If I was either of them, I'd get tired of writing individual letters for each school.  Most people go with general unless there's better reason to choose targeted.
