    I hope my question makes sense. I am wondering if I should use the evaluation form that Interfolio provides, or do I wait to get the evaluation forms from the specific schools I apply to? Also, what do I do if 20 schools ask for evaluation forms? Do I send them all to Interfolio seperately and send the letter of recommendation and evaluation seperately from there?

    I used Interfolio exclusively and had no problem.

    Err....am I missing something? I thought we just provide the profs with the Interfolio confidentiality waiver (the one with the barcode) and they just write a free letter. I didn't know there was an actual evaluation form. Have I done something wrong?

    I also have another question (sorry for the thread hijack). I printed out the confidentiality waivers and gave them to my profs, but someone recently told me that I needed to sign them. I didn't sign the waivers as I didn't see a particular spot indicating the need for a signature. Will Interfolio still accept them? I know this sounds stupid as they could only have obtained the form from me, but I guess i'm just worried. Thanks in advance.

    OP: just use the interfolio papers. Most schools wont even care if you dont use their certain paper. Most all accept intrefolio with no problem!:thumbup:

    i don't remember signing mine. i'm pretty sure i even just emailed them to my profs as attachments. i just checked to make sure, there is no student sig required.
