How many letters of recommendation are too many?
For my applications I am sending out the three required letters of recommendation (2 teacher recs, 1 counselor rec). However, I completed an internship over the summer, and the woman that I interned for wrote me a letter as well which I am planning on sending out. That leaves me four.
I am applying Early Decision, and my neighbors across the street are both graduates from the school to which I am applying early. They have repeatedly told me that they want to write me a letter of recommendation. I know that their write up would be glowing, but I don't want to go overboard with the letters I send in.
Would five letters of recommendation be too many for my ED school?
Should I say Thanks or No thanks to my neighbors?
Thanks a lot for your help!
