do you have to waive your right to view the letters written to you?
You are supposed to waive the right to view them. That does not mean your recommenders can't show you the letters after you have waived the right, but there is a certain confidentiality expected when you ask someone to write you a LOR.

Well, I mean...I guess you can choose to not waive your viewing rights them but why? I believe it looks a lot better if you waive viewing them.

If you don't trust your recommenders, then don't use them.

My Premed advisor recounted a story of where she saw an senior adcom member sifting through the 5 LORs of an applicant and tossed out one of letters on the spot becaues it didn't have a confidentiality agreement.
