I just applied to 50 districts. Most do not have openings. I sent all of them my application materials, and my school sent my recommendation letters. I was just contacted by 2 of the references I listed, and they told me the school sent them a sheet to fill out about me. This school has not even sent a letter yet saying they got my information. I just wondered if this is standard procedure. I feel kind of bad that my references have to fill out a form, if I'm just going to go into a pool of 800 applicants (although I'm happy they are doing something with my information). TIA!
