Is there a way for me to read my letters of recommendations?

I already sent them to colleges but I have no idea what they say. Can I like read them on Naviance or common app or something like that?

No. If you signed the FERPA waiver or whatever it is called, you waived the right to view the letters so you can not view the letters. Just trust your teachers that you chose. You wouldn't have chosen some random teacher to write your letters I am assuming. If you chose your teachers correctly where they like you as both a student and person, they will mostly if not only say good things about you.

Absolutely not. The FERPA wivers explicitly bans you from seeing them. Theoretically, your admission can be overturned if found violating it.

The purpose of rec letter is to get an 'unbiased' view of your personality you seeing it would then stop the unbias-ness that it brings.
