How do I submit a teacher rec that has been handed to me?

<p>One of my teachers had technical difficulties submitting her recommendation electronically, and so opted to simply give me her recommendation letter (4 copies of it). Unfortunately, this was before break, and I didn't think too much about the problem this would pose. </p>

<p>Obviously, my recommendations will be sent through mail. However, I assume it looks quite bad if I send them from my own address. How should I go about this?</p>

<p>Edit: Also, were I to send these letters myself, how would I attach the information that associates these letters with my application? I'm thinking my Common App ID should be on the letters themselves, right?</p>

<p>If you have added this teacher on the common app as a recommender for 4 colleges, you just need to create a cover letter to go with the recommendation. You normally would have printed out a hardcopy Teacher Evaluation form to give to your teacher, but since she didn't fill that out you will have to create a cover letter as a placeholder for that information (Your name, common app id, etc., your teacher's name, class she taught,etc.). It won't be perfect, but it is what it is.</p>

<p>Oh yeah, I think she may have actually filled out the evaluation form, but she didn't mention it to me. I'm hoping this fragmented transmission of information will be OK with the schools for which I need this recommendation. </p>

<p>What I'm still not sure about is sending this letter with a return address that is actually mine and not my teacher's.</p>

<p>Yes, that is fine ... they will usually throw away the envelop and file the papers in your folder. To make sure this makes it with the rest of your application, make sure you include your common app ID number, which you'll see when you login to the common app.</p>
