Hi everyone!

Would love if anyone could provide insight on letters of recommendation when applying to different degrees. I’m applying to MPH programs and had my recommenders write letters based on this. However, for one university I'm interested in I’m only eligible for a MS/MSPH.

Will the admissions committee ding my application if my recommenders mention MPH when I’m applying to a MS program? I did ask my recommenders to be general in their letters, but I’m just worried a mention of MPH slipped in there somewhere. I already submitted my application to a few programs, so I can’t delete the letters I have in SOPHAS.

Just wondering if I should even take the time/money to apply to this program if my letters of rec might hurt me here?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
