Admissions To waive or not to waive on FERPA

  1. Oct 28, 2016 #1
    I'm applying to OSU but I'm not sure whether or not to waive or not to waive my right to view letters of recommendation on FERPA. I see arguments for both but no clear answer. Can anyone help me

    Yes, the general rule is to waive them. Many LoR writers will not submit them if you don't.

    Is there any other reason aside from this? I'm pretty sure the teacher writing my letter doesn't care.

    A letter that you see will have less weight than a letter you don't.
