I just received my first letter of recommendation from my English III teacher, it sound very nice and the wording and language is excellent but I'm a little concerned because its only about 180 words long, not even a half a page, and really only hits on 2 major points of my personality/qualities.
1.) Is there a certain standard that a recommendor should follow?
2.) How long should they generally be?
3.) and how much of a factor do they really play in the admissions/nomination process?
should I still use this one since I will have 2 others that will most likely be longer to make up for it? I really don't want to have to write him back asking him to redo it and sounding ungrateful, any suggestions or comments?
