Should I submit an optional teacher letter of rec?

I am applying to Penn State that requires no letter of reccs. However, it does give you the option to submit up to 4 letter of reccs. Do you think I should submit one optional letter of recc? (I know submitting too many optional letter of reccs is not good)

If you have a teacher who already has the letter ready, why not send it in! Four sounds excessive, but I feel like one could do no harm. :slight_smile:

Will the letter add anything to your candidacy ? If so sure. If not, just to do it for sake of doing it, then no need.

In other words if they can add a new perspective about you then great. If it’s she’s a great student and I gave her an A. Then no need.
