Multiple transfers in a short time

Okay, so I started college this past August at a tiny liberal arts college that nobody has ever heard of, hated everything about it with a passion, and started to plan out transfer apps on my first day there. I found out in late October that I was going to have to come home in November due to a family emergency, worked it out so I could leave the school with all my credits, and promptly registered at a local CC. I plan to apply for transfer to four colleges (three private liberal arts colleges, one public university) for fall 2011, and am having no issues with two of the applications.

However, colleges A and B both use the Common Application, and as such want recommendations from professors. The problem is, I haven't had a professor long enough to get to know them whatsoever, and even if I had it's a bit of a moot point since my old college is ten hours away and I haven't seen any of my professors in over a month. I managed to get one copy of my College Official form, and figure I can probably just photocopy that, but I'm at a loss for the recommendation letters. I am going on a campus visit in roughly two weeks, would it be okay to ask then, or would they just tell me to ask Common App?

    I would say that it would be worth waiting to transfer, so that you can get good LORs. I'm pretty sure the college official report should be sent directly by the college.
