How-To Guide: Recommenders

Managing Candidates

When you log into your recommender account, you will be able to see a list of all the candidates who have specified you as a recommender. From this list you can see how many applications the candidate has submitted and how many of these applications are awaiting letters of recommendation to be uploaded. 

You can see more details about the applications a particular candidate has selected by clicking the "show applications" button for a given candidate.

Once you click this button, each institution to which the candidate has submitted an application will be revealed as well as the status of your letter to that institution.

Submitting Letters

You can submit a letter for a candidate to a particular institution by clicking on the "submit letter" link next to the institution in the list of applications a candidate has submitted.

This will take you to a screen which will allow you to upload a letter to be sent to the specified institution. You may name this letter and attach personal notes to the letter for your own future reference. To upload the letter, click on the "browse" button and select the file you with to use as your letter.

You may also wish to only upload one letter to be automatically delivered to every institution a candidate applies to. This can be done from the candidate list by selected "submit letter for automatic delivery".
