    Did you guys give addressed stamped envelopes for your recommenders to send letters in? Most of my recommenders have agreed to this, but one of them said that it looked more professional if he used university envelopes and postage... should I ask all my recommenders to do this?

    I think that an SASE looks better, unless a recommendor insists otherwise. As long as the letter is on letterhead, I don't think that it matters. The envelope will be thrown away before anyone important reads the letters anyway. I did type the address on the envelope, though.

    The envelope is the first thing that's tossed (and hopefully the only thing), so not that important what kind, but typing is good just to make sure it's computer-readable by USPS. Also it can be helpful to put:

    123 Any St.
    New York NY 10019

    instead of:

    123 Any St.
    New York, NY 10019

    It's easier for the scanner to read it if you don't put the comma and put a second space in between city/state and state/zip.
