Before entering the information of your counselor and the teachers who wrote you letters of recommendation, you’ll be asked to answer a few questions (FERPA). Go over these questions carefully, especially the third question which asks if you waive your right to view the letters of recommendation at the colleges you’re applying to. Most recommenders will ask you to waive your right, but make sure you talk to them beforehand before doing so. Afterwards, invite your counselor and the teachers who are recommending you by entering all their contact information. Once they’re invited, they’ll be able to upload their letters of recommendation on your behalf.
