Are there any good templates or examples anywhere? I'd like to see what some good ones look like.

google it or look in Montauk's book, that's how I found them. If you have a friend in a bschool, you can ask for his/hers too.

You can surely help your recommender by drafting up some bullet points to remind him/her of things you've accomplished. Often recommenders make the mistake of just mentioning good qualities (e.g. strong analytical skills), but not backing them up with good examples when you proved them. That's probably the most important aspect of a good reco.

How do u approach your recommenders with different school's LOR?

Seems like every school has a different set of LOR questions, and each of them requires you to email the LORs to the school. Wouldn't this be a monstrous pain in the ass for the recommenders i applied to like 10 schools?

Yes this does seem like a pain. But what I've decided is to just give plenty of notice, take him/her out for lunch to explain stuff and just have a good time. Then make sure to follow up every so often to make sure they are on top of it, and when all is said and done, get them a gift.
