Mail-in Reccomendations

One of my teachers mails in letters of rec rather than submitting them through the common app/naviance.

Maybe I've developed selective blindness because I can not for the life of me figure out where to address the envelope to to apply to D-mouth. Where should I be sending the letters?

Also, I know that Stanford asks that a specific label be attached to the front of mail-in apps. Does Dartmouth request something similar? Or am I good with just the common app student eval, and actual letter?

    @jeanperrin,
    If you have any questions regarding the application material (recommendations, etc...), you should contact the admissions office directly by email.

    (However, I doubt that Dartmouth accepts paper form: You should invite your teacher to fill out the recommendation form online through the Common Application website.)

    "I doubt that Dartmouth accepts paper form" Uhhh... that's ridiculous. Of course they take mailed-in materials. You imagine that only people with online ability apply? Really?

    Where to send the letter? Googlemap "dartmouth admissions office"

    Jimmy - incorrect. Dartmouth does accept mail-in documentation, especially with the difficulties of the Common App this year. Many recommenders are finding that they are "invited" but when they click on their invite, they are unable to upload.

    @T26E4
    I told that jeanperrin should contact the admissions office and NEVER said "I am SURE they ONLY accept paper form".

    "You imagine that only people with online ability apply? Really?" NO, I have no such idea.

    @jeanperrin,
    If you have any questions regarding the application material (recommendations, etc...), you should contact the admissions office directly by email.

    Best of luck with your application. :)

    shrug...

    jeanperrin: I can absolutely guarantee you that Dartmouth admissions accepts mailed documentation. Obviously they've started moving on the reads so expediency should be your M.O. Don't worry about any labels (Stanford is the oddball). Just get it to them.
