HBS Recommendation Letter Word Limit  [#permalink]

Does anyone know if HBS strictly follows 250 word limit for the recommendation letters? For Wharton, if your recommendor wants to write more than the actual word limit, he/she can do so by uploading a word document.

Is there any such arrangement for HBS also or the the only option for a recommendor for HBS is to actually type in 250 words while responding to the questions?

Please guide. We all know that time is of essence.

One of my recommenders said they were able to just upload a word doc. I'd caution against going completely over the limit. 260, 270, 280, fine. 400, no.

A bit over the limit is fine, they won't count but I would advise not to go too much over the limit.

HBS Recommendation Letter Word Limit is given as a recommendation (they say: "Recommended: 300 words") so I guess not very strict.
Answers should not be typed in text boxes - your recommenders need to Upload a Word or PDF document with the answers to both questions.

The word limit for your recommendation letter depends on the school that you are applying to.

Typically, you should vary your recommendation letter as per the requirements of each of the schools that you are interested in.
