I have a question about LoRs

to whom should the letter writers address the letter to? Is it okay to say to whom it may concern?

I will be asking my referees to submit it to interfolio because I'd like to use the SAME reference letters for SCHOLARSHIP applications as well.

Thus, is it okay to tell the reference writers to address the letter to "to whom it may concern?" thank you.

Tell your writer that you'll use the same letter for scholarships as for admissions, if you wish, but frankly, I think that scholarship groups would be happy with med admission letters and on the flip side, if the letters are too generic the adcom will think that they sound weak and generic.

Writers know how to write letters. Most will use To Whom it May Concern, or leave out the salutation altogether. No worries.
