Members don't see this ad.
Most applications don't ask who will be sending the letters of recommendations. Is it a good idea to send them a letter stating who they can expect to receive our letters from?

Did any one else notify the schools about the recommenders through a letter?

You do not have to notify anyone. School expect you to send LORs anyway. Most of secondaries would ask you who your recommenders are anyway.

My school sent a packet as well. So I too did not have committee letters. Now lets suppose you have 5 letters in your file. The way it worked at my school was that all 5 letters went out, regardless of if a school only wanted 3. So I couldn't choose 3 out of the 5 to send out. All 5 went out. So when a school asked me for only 3 recommendation letters, I listed the names of my 3 recommenders whom I thought wrote me the best letters. The in turn, the medical school would only read those 3 letters, instead of all 5.


Hope this helps
:)
