An "additional information" question

<p>So, I want to apply to mostly Ivy League schools and I am wondering if I can use the "Additional Information" section on the CommonApp to send an additional letter of recommendation. Can I do this?</p>

<p>No, if you want extra recommendations, the additional info section is not the place to do it. Some schools, like Carnegie Mellon (I know, CMU isn't an Ivy League school) require 2, but let you have an extra teacher rec if you want to. For other schools, like Stanford, 2 is the max.</p>

<p>But there are many schools out there that let you submit a rec from an employer or some person you did research with. (You can check the site of whatever school you're applying to and see if they let you do this) These recs are may be sent to the school separately from the Common App.</p>
