When to send teacher recs

<p>Is it ok to give my teachers the rec forms even if I have not sent my application to the college yet? I am worried that the recs might get there before the actual application and was wondering if this could cause problems</p>

<p>It's fine-I did it with all my colleges. I think they just put the recs in your folder to look at later.</p>

<p>teachers at my D's school give the recs to the college guidance office to be sent with the transcripts.</p>
