Recommendations ?? [#permalink]

I am applying to 10 schools and would prefer my recommenders just write one solid essay covering the essential elements that ADCOMM wants to hear about rather than have to complete 10 unique grids and questions from each school.
I have read that this is perfectly acceptable because ADCOMMs understand and expect that recommenders are busy.
Can anyone validate this? Has anyone completed their application using this method?
I think they may need to fill out the grid anyway, but I imagine it is not uncommon for people to do this. Realistically, you can't expect your rec to write 10 custom responses. I'll ask around and find out.
In short, I plan on doing this. There's really no choice - and anyway, I think its OK too because you have no control over what the recommender does (at least not directly) - so if the recommender chooses to submit a pre-formed letter rather than fill out a bunch of stuff, it's less a reflection on you and more a reflection on them. Just my view.
