For Stanford, the teacher Recs come with questions that the teachers could answer or they said the teacher should include the letter. Does Stanford prefer the questions they provide over the letter? My teacher asked which I wanted and I asked him to answer the questions.
<p>Some teachers prefer to give letters because it reduces the # of forms they have to fill out. If you are applying to 6 colleges the teacher potentially has to fill out 6 special evaluation forms. Or, they can just say "see attached" and save a lot of time by using the letter.</p>
