Letters of Recommendation to UNC

esco1994esco1994 Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
I am a currently a senior in high school and I am applying to UNC Chapel Hill by the October 15 deadline. I already have a letter of recommendation from my English and Newspaper teacher and know that I will be receiving one from my counselor. My only problem is that from what I can gather online UNC asks for electronically submitted letters, as do most other colleges, but my English teacher gave me four sealed letters physically. Is this a problem? How should I go about getting any other letters?

    As far as I know(not very much) you should have emailed your recommendations via the common app. your teacher should fill out the rec's online and send it back to you and you should get a notification on the common app where you can choose which rec u want to send to which school.

    Call UNC. Although they may prefer online submissions, say you've already rec'd them from the LOR writer in sealed envelopes and feel it's unethical to open it to scan and upload it. I'll bet they tell you to drop it in the mail to them.
