How important of Rec ? [#permalink] New post 05 Jan 2007, 06:35
One of my recommender submited 1500- word- rec today for Kellogg school. I don't think 1500 words can cover Kellogg recommendation.
Anther submit 3000 word-rec

Any thoughts? ..a little bit worry

1500 words is several pages. Why do you worry about length? Worry about content.

Holy sh8t, 1500 words! That seems like a lot, but like Rhyme says its quality over quantity (for the most part).

Wow :o Where do you guyz include 1500 words? The school that I am applying to does not even have space for writing anything. It is just multiple choice type of questions.
