As some of you may or may not recall, a while back I was wondering aloud on the message boards whether or not to use a fourth letter of rec from a teacher of mine who recently offered his help. I thought he would just write them, give them to me in sealed envelopes, and I would decide what to do. I was thinking about sending them with a little note of explanation if I did send them at all, saying, you know, feel free to discount this additional letter but this teacher was really important to my development as a writer, etc, etc.
The point is I hadn't decided yet what to do with them.
So. Turns out he decided to be very helpful and save me money on postage and ship them off himself.
Nice of him, right? But this frightens me to no end. On top of being an additional letter, it is arriving at places (Iowa) that specifically requested that everything be included in a single application envelope.
Is this a horrible horrible thing that's happened? Or ok? Should I write to the schools? Let it go?
Thanks, guys. This is not good for my health.
