Submitting duplicate recommendations?
I'm applying to MIT through the questbridge application.
Through the questbridge application, I already submitted 2 recommendations, but if the ED questbridge college match fails to match me with a certain university, I'll probably have to send commonapp recommendations to those schools for Regular decision. Now, my teachers already sent their questbridge recommendations, and are on their way to send duplicate recommendations (evaluation forms A&B). Those forms would not be required if I get finalist, something I'm still waiting on. That means that if I get questbridge finalist, those "extra" common app recommendations are not useful because the colleges would use the questbridge recommendations anyway.
Will sending those extra duplicate recommendations before I get finalist hurt me?
I really need your advice, because I'm freaking out so bad about this whole college app process.
