Quality > Quantity.

In my opinion (others may disagree) I think anything over the required number is excessive unless you have some special circumstances to explain. 6 is already a lot. If these letters are going to add something to your application that's one thing. If all it's going to do is add pages that say the same thing as your other 6 letters it's probably just going to be looked at as extra paperwork.

yo u already applied with 6 and wanna add 2 more in December? will that even be accepted if you are already complete at these schools? 6 is already on the too many side. 7-8 in December is NO
