    I got 5 letters,
    but 4 are from professors, so they will probably be similar in nature.

    What do you think is better:

    4 redundant letters + one good one


    3 redundant letters + one good one

    (the redundant ones aren't bad, but I only knew the professors from a few office hour appointments)
  2. SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads.
  3. mix and shake and see the results for yourselves :)

    I have 10 letters now, so each school gets a little bit of everything ;)

    Have you seen them and know for sure?
    No matter what always include the one you know is strong. Then mix and match the prof ones. If they are all similar, don't overdo it with the adcoms. Just take it easy and send a couple profs to each one in addition to the good one.
