I have 7 professors who can write (awesome) lors for me. Would 7 lors be too many? I know some schools have a 6 lor cap, is that for all schools?
gramatically, no, you cannot have to many lors.
and by gosh, seven letters! i thought many schools had a 4 or 5 letter cap. do you think adcoms would like to read 7 letters saying the same things over and over?
I submitted six LORs - 3 science professors (undergrad science, grad science/shadowed him, and undergrad science/worked as a TA for 4 years under him), 2 non-science professors (undergrad language professor, and graduate non-science professor), and 1 research PI. All of these recommenders highlighted different parts of my life story and/or ECs. In the end, I know my application stood out due to the extraordinary recommendations my mentors provided. So six for me was perfect!I have 7 professors who can write (awesome) lors for me. Would 7 lors be too many? I know some schools have a 6 lor cap, is that for all schools?
well, they are all professors...but
3 of them were my research PIs
2 of them are non-science profs(I did volunteer work with one of them)
