Anybody submitting an additional, third rec for Sloan?

I think a third recommender can share some great experiences with the adcom, but yhe instructions state that only two should be submitted. I am leaning toward not submitting it.. but curious what you guys think :shock:

I was at an information session recently and the adcom member addressed this same question. He said that if an applicant submitted 3 recommendations, they would just pick 2 randomly and just read those.

This last summer I was talking with an adcom from MIT. She very strongly suggested not to submit a third letter.

I asked the adcom about this when I visited earlier this fall....they strongly recommended against it.
