If it were me, I would mail 2 two letters, with each of you having your own separate letter. Where I am from, people are very concerned about privacy concerns, and, if you have people having making one request in a single letter, there *** be some privacy issue or some strange policy that is being contravened. Just having ONE person with ONE letter keeps things very simple. I don't think it is a big deal either way, but I would go with two letters for two people.

For a singular letter, it becomes....

You can eliminate the "mail to us/me" if you like.

I am a final year student for academic year 2003 –2004, and I request that you please prepare my semesters 1 through 10 marksheets and transcripts and mail the documentation as soon as possible.

Or if you want to contacted instead....

I am a final year student for academic year 2003 –2004, and I request that you please prepare my semesters 1 through 10 marksheets and transcripts and contact us at the above phone numbers so that we may arrange to pick-up the documentation.

hi hiker,

yeah we used ur advice and we did submit 2 different letters, no doubt with the same format.

U were right. It really made a difference when we submitted 2 different letters. As 5 years of this course leads us to have a image in college, which in turn did reflect in the way they respond to our individual letters.

thanks,
priya
Hi Priya, I am glad you succeeded.
