    Ive heard that the AADSAS screws up a lot, so i had my school send the rec directly to the places I applied.

    If you want to have AADSAS send it then one is fine.

    AADSAS needs only letter from each letter writer.

    It just take aadsas time to process your LOR.
    maybe 3 wks minimum due to high volume of applicants.
    i sent mine through aadsas and it worked fine.

    you could also setup an account with your local sch and have them send in your LOR.

    If you send the LORs to AADSAS, then one letter from each professors will be fine. AADSAS will copy LORs and transcripts and send them to individual schools (you don't pay them big money without letting them do SOME work!).

    However, if you decide to send the LORs and transcripts directly to each schools then you will have to ask the professors to print out multiple copies (as many as you need, plus 3 extras just in case).
