how many letters of recommendations are usually required from the ivies and other top 50 schools?

A lot are 1 counselor + 2 teacher. (Sometimes they have forms instead of or in addition to letters).

yeah... you could probably send more, but I wouldn't push it over three or four... remember, the admissions officer who reads your file might loose his/her patience at some point if you send in too many.

I think generally it's only a good idea to send more than the required # if the additional rec. is from someone different who could provide a different perspective on you. (ie. a coach, employer, etc. but not an additional teacher saying, "Blank is the best student in my class, etc." type rec).
