I was reading some posts on letters of rec and I guess those you ask to write the letter are supposed to mail it themselves??

Does it have to be that way? I just think it would be easier to send it all myself so everything is right there and less likely to be lost or whatever. Plus, some of the people im going to ask are MD's with limited time as it is, and id feel like even more of a burden if they have to send it too.

Is it written somewhere as to which it has to be?

Also, people recommend sending 3. My uni recommended sending 6? Not sure why the difference but im going with 6.

Give your letter writer a pre-addressed stamped envelope. Make it as easy for them as possible. And you shouldn't be able to "intercept" your own letters.
