So should I provide my recommenders a copy of my essay?

I didn't, but only because I hadn't written anything yet. I put together a "positioning statement" which was a piss-poor version of my goals essay and sent that to my recommenders.

I think it's important that your recommenders have a clear understanding of your goals.

Look at this: www.interfolio.com

This is what I'm using. I, too, am applying to a bunch of schools, and my recommenders really do not have the time/patience to fill out each picayune form each schools wants. With this, I ask each of my recs to write their letter about me and send it to Interfolio. I can then request it sent to each school I want. It's confidential and relatively cheap.

I've queried a few schools about this, and they've said it shouldn't negatively impact my application (UVA, Duke, Georgetown). More importantly, these adcoms should realize they're not the only game in town, so they're going to deal with it.

Give them plenty of time...that's the most help you can provide. If you're just starting out, it may not be enough time for 6 schools. I would recommend giving your references about 2 weeks notice per school. (4 schools = 8 weeks)
