If I add a teacher to a school after they've already posted a recommendation, can I use the same evaluation?

I'm still working on finalizing my college list, but I'm simultaneously having my teacher evaluations done. On the Common App, if I have teachers who have already submitted a recommendation for one school, am I able to transfer the same letter to a school that they were not an evaluator on at the time they originally submitted the evaluation? So, if they've already submitted an evaluation for Cornell and I then add them on as a Princeton teacher, will they have to submit the evaluation again, or will it happen automatically, since they've already submitted the evaluation? Thanks for the help! My school advisors are clueless as to all of my questions.

I’d email CommonApp link: https://www.commonapp.org/contact They have been very good at getting back to me so I’d reach out to them.

When you add the teacher to a new school, it will automatically submit their recommendation to that school. They don't need to submit their recommendation again to Common App.

I faced the same problem, just try restarting the app or retrying to register.

The job of a teacher is very difficult and requires many skills in order to convey information to children and at the same time to put knowledge in their minds. Children often encounter problems in learning because they don't understand their assignments, which is why a resource has been created where there are many https://studyhippo.com/ essay samples of homework and self-study materials to help children understand in more detail. The current system of education is outdated and needs to change, and with the help of this service you can help children learn information better.
