What size envelopes?

What size envelopes are we supposed to give our teachers to send our letters of rec in?

<p>normal, small ones are fine. Depends on the school though. Columbia, for example, requires 9 X 12 ones because they scan everything and don't want things folded.</p>

<p>i've had teachers advise me not to give them envelopes or addresses to where to send it so that you are able to see what they have said about you and written about you. This allows you to "screen" what you send as your recs. This is what i did and it worked well.</p>

<p>Really?? Because many schools have the waiver thing where you sign something along the lines of "I won't see this" so that the school knows the teachers are writing honestly, and thus their recommendation will be more valuable.</p>
