Is it better to have more letters of recommendation?

Is it better to have more letters of recommendation?

We at CollegeVine recommend against ever sending more than one additional letter of recommendation, for a total of 4 recommendations (one counselor, two teachers, and one additional letter), but if you’re confident that one additional letter would make a substantial positive contribution to your application, go for it!

Is it okay to ask for multiple letters of recommendation?

Normally, you should choose the two people who know you best and can write you the strongest letters, and ask each of them to send one letter to each program to which you are applying. But there’s no need to get letters from more different people purely for the variety.

Can letters of recommendation be reused?

You may need the person sending the letter of rec to submit it separately each time. The easiest way to reuse letters of rec is usually on an application platform, where the letters are often automatically used as many times as you apply to colleges.

What happens if you don’t get into any colleges?

If you don’t get accepted to any school you’ve applied to, you still have some options: You can go to a community college and then transfer—sometimes after a semester, but usually after a year. You can apply to a college that offers rolling admission—sometimes as late as the summer after your senior year.

How long can you keep letters of recommendation?

Letters don’t expire, they decay. As each year passes they are worth that much less. I’d say the half-life is about 3–5 years, but it’s very context-dependent.
