Sorry to interrupt the EA excitement folks. But, I have a question here regarding recommendations.

One of my recommenders has started working on the recommendation for Duke. He says that some of the questions are similar to Ross (I too checked - actually one is same and another is very similar). He said that he is going to use the same answers to the questions for Duke. Will this be OK? I am not very comfortable asking him to write it again (plus, I too feel that I am the same person and his views won't change just because the University has changed).

Any views on this? Perhaps some of the EA folks, since you might have already gone thru this :-D (in reverse order though, Duke questions repeated for Ross)?

Come to think of it. My other recommender has already submitted his recommendation and I didn't get a peep out of him regarding this!!!!Hmmm... suspicious :stupid !!! (I have a strong feeling that he has already repeated his answers).

Shouldn't be a problem I guess. Just make sure you ask the recommender to change the school name if he/she has used it at all. :P

The whole point of all the schools asking the same questions for LOR is to save the effort of the recommenders. So I would say its perfectly fine to use the same letter.

Wow. Thanks for pointing that out.

Guess then I just need to caution my second recommender (he was my Ross recommender)!!!

Its getting hard to keep track of things with so many applications floating around.

"We regret to inform you that you have not been invited to interview; please note that this is not a final decision on your application" - what does this mean?
Dinged totally or waitlisted?
