    Using Interfolio for letters of recommendation?

    Hi All,

    I wanted to know if anyone has used Interfolio for storing and submitting letters of recommendation to grad schools??

    If so, I would like to know how it works, especially if you're applying to multiple programs that require signed and sealed recommendation letters. Must the recommender submit more than one letter, etc?? Is it a reliable service?

    Sorry for all the questions, but the website is not specific enough.

    Thanks,

    English Ivy

    I would avoid it like the plague. I'm sure it's fine for certain purposes, but graduate school recommendations? You're putting $100+ into the process for an opportunity to pay another $10,000-20,000 a year. Why not make your application as easy to review as possible - and nothing is easier than a printed page.

    I agree. While it's a pain to chase people down to get the recommendations, just be consisent and remind them of your deadline. I would submit materials to the schools exactly the way they've asked for them.
