Principal's Recommendation Issue

<p>My principal wrote me a decent recommendation for Stanford...and he used </p>

<p>that same one for all the other schools I'm applying to....</p>

<p>BUT he forgot to delete STANFORD on the recommendations...</p>

<p>His recommendation is confidential...I couldn't see it...but he told me about it today...he seemed worried too...</p>

<p>I was thinking about asking my principal to send apology letters to each school and explain how the name Stanford got in the recs.</p>

<p>Geeeeeez....I feel like I'm screwed....ANY HELP???</p>

<p>Ouch. I don't know what I would do in this case, but writing apology letters seems appropriate.</p>

<p>screw your principal... but i would ask him to write an apology letter to the schools and perhaps you should write one too... stating/ reassuring the schs that they are your first choice...</p>

<p>It won't matter. Most schools will assume you are applying to more than one. It wasn't your mistake and it won't hurt you.</p>

<p>You in no way can be blamed for this, so I don't see how it could be held against you. Principal recommendations are just a bad idea.</p>
