I just realized that MIT does not use the common application. When I get my letter of recommendations, what exactly do I give to the teachers?
Do I give them the MIT evaluation form separately from the common application evaluation form? For the MIT specific forms, I assume they need an envelope for those? Do they need an envelope for the common application recs and evaluation form, or is that submitted by them online? Do they need to know which schools I'm applying to via the common app? For the common app forms, will one copy of the forms suffice for all the schools I'm applying to?
Lastly, can the teachers that are writing my recs use the same rec that they wrote for the common app as the one they write for my schools without the common app? Or will they need to write a new letter?
Sorry for all the questions, but maybe someone can help me understand all of this.
