Hi there,

I'm planning worse case scenario here, but i'm just wondering if I don't get in after applying this year, is it bad to reuse 1-2 letters of rec out of say 5-6?

I have 2 letters of recs that are pretty good, and speak of things I did earlier in my undergraduate career, and are also very strong.

I understand that if one reapplies, you would want to show recent stuff since the last cycle. Which also includes what i did the past year, like classes, EC's.

I reused my school ones. I didn't have new classes soooo.... My school told me I should get the profs to rewrite them so the schools saw new dates on them instead of seeing that they were 5 years old.
