Do I add teachers on commonapp online even if they are doing rec. by paper?

<p>I want paper recommendations from my teachers because I feel better seeing everything go into the envelope and sent physically. Do I still need to add the teachers as officials online?</p>

<p>Sorry if this question has been asked before.</p>

<p>I don't know what you're talking about. The common app never asked me anything about teacher recs. The only thing common app related I have done with recs is printing out the rec form from their website to give to the teachers.</p>

<p>comm app teacher rec is all on paper i believe</p>

<p>And often, the teachers send the recommendations directly. You give them the stamped, self-addressed envelopes. You never "see them" go into the envelope.</p>

<p>You can add the teachers, and it sends them an email and they fill out the form automatically and they upload a rec letter and stuff all online. At least that's what my GC said.</p>

<p>If thats not possible then why under "school forms" do teachers have a drop down menu from which you can select one?</p>

<p>You don't even need to print out the teacher/counselor rec. form from the commonapp website. The schools under commonapp will also take the recommendation letter from the school (w/ the school's letter head) instead of the commonapp rec. forms. So really, you can let the school care of that thing and all will go well.</p>

<p>alright, so i'll just have the teachers send the recs and they'll know its for me. thanks. :)</p>
