    I am currently in the process of applying for a congressional nomination from my two US senators and my state representative for my district and I have a brief question about the letters of recommendation required for my applications.

    Is it acceptable to have the same 3 rec providers use the same letters they wrote for one nominating authority as part of the application to the other 2?

    For example, could one teacher that has agreed to write a rec for me write one letter and send that rec to all 3 representatives to which I'm applying for a nomination, or does this person need to write a different letter to each representative I'm applying to?

    Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but I couldn't find anything on the matter online so far.

    I don't see any issue with the same LOR. I would have your recommenders address separate letters to each nominating source, but the content of the letters could be the same.

    Using the same LOR source for all of your MOC is perfectly acceptable. Just make sure they are addressed appropriately. Nothing more imbarrasing than sending a LOR to senator smith when it should be senator jones.

    The nominating sources will not compare, know, or care that the LORs to each are identical.
