Georgetown LOR limit?

Hey everyone! Does anyone know the maximum number of letters of recommendation Georgetown accepts? I've got a few teachers and mentors who'd be willing to write one for me, and I just want to make sure I'm not overdoing it. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! Georgetown University typically requires three letters of recommendation: one from your high school counselor and two from academic teachers. However, there's no strict limit on the number of letters you can submit. That being said, it's essential to prioritize quality over quantity. Admissions officers have limited time to review each application, and submitting too many letters could potentially dilute the impact of your strongest recommendations.

I recommend choosing two academic teachers who can speak to your intellectual abilities, character, and personal growth. It's also okay to include an additional letter from a mentor or coach if they can provide unique insights into your skills and attributes that the other recommenders haven't covered. But try to limit it to no more than four letters in total, so the admissions officers can focus on your best qualities without feeling overwhelmed. Good luck with your application!
