Even if you're burning with curiosity, you shouldn't pressure your recommenders to show you the letter.

Should I ask for a letter of recommendation in person or email?
Letter of recommendation: Ask personally When seeking letters of recommendation, don't send e-mails or leave voicemails. It's to your advantage to ask the person face-to-face. This conveys just how important this letter is to you. Many instructors and supervisors deal with dozens of recommendation requests every year.
Do letters of recommendation need to be in by deadline?
All of the recommendations should be submitted or postmarked by the deadline date. However, some schools may be more lenient with school officials. You should contact the school to see if they accept recommendations later than the stated deadline.
Can letters of rec be submitted after application?
The recs themselves can be submitted after the application deadline. The same rule also applies for the counselor rec; if it's something that someone else is writing for you, it doesn't have to be in by the deadline.
Can you send recommendation letters yourself?
If they cannot submit the letters online, ask the admissions office for alternative ways to submit a recommendation letter. From what I know, there's no way a recommendation letter sent by you would be given any credit.
Can you send letters of recommendation after application?

Can you email letters of recommendation?
The letter of recommendation is a crucial document when you are applying for a job, an internship or a graduate program. If you find it awkward asking for the letter of recommendation in person, or if your professor is comfortable with digital communication, you can request for the recommendation letter via email.
