Waiving recommendation rights [#permalink]
28 Sep 2007, 07:48
Quick question: When I filled out the section of my online application for recommendations, I was prompted with the option to waive my rights to view my recommendation letters. I did not waive my rights because I didn't think it would make a difference either way.
But now I've heard that if you don't waive your rights, the committee will assume that you're looking at your recommendation letters before they're submitted and that you don't trust your recommenders. Is this true??
Can I contact the school to waive my rights now considering that neither of my recommenders has started writing their letters?
I suppose you could write to the school and state that you misunderstood the waiver of rights section and now wish to waive your rights. In general, there is not much point in refusing to waive your right- if you lack faith in your LOR writer to tell the truth it is a good idea to reconsider asking that person to write one in the first place.
