My pre-health professions committee requires 5-7 letters of rec to be evaluated. I had 8 letters, 7 of which are very strong, but I really think that is way too many to send to med schools. I called a couple of schools and they said that they usually don't like too many if they are mailed individually, but they won't hold it against me and don't mind if they are part of my composite file at my univ. Just for reference, how many are you sending? How many should I send and how many is TOO many?
