Question regarding transfer LORs


<p>I am planning on applying for Fall 2012 transfer, specifically to Amherst, Pomona, Pitzer, Brown, and UPenn. I was reading through several posts on the forums and noticed that many people would mention that they received excellent letters of recommendation. My question is how can you possibly know whether your letter was good or not when most schools (I am assuming most since I don't know the policy for every school) state that students are not allowed to see their letters? Even if you don't waive your right to access these letters, would it be considered rude if you asked to see what your professors wrote?</p>

<p>Can anybody explain this to me? I'm definitely curious as to what my professors would say about me but at the same time, I trust that they will send out a good word and wouldn't want them to feel like I don't trust them.</p>

<p>Thanks for reading and helping out!</p>
