On one of my apps I listed all of my recommenders' names. Due to a very personal issue one of those recommenders was unable to write his letter for me so my app was submitted with 2 out of 3 LORs. This school does not require any LORs but because I listed all 3 recommenders they sent me an e-mail saying my app is incomplete without that LOR and that I need to notify them if I would like them to process my app without it.
I am fine with them processing my app with only the LORs that were submitted but I am wondering if this "missing LOR" will somehow reflect negatively on me. I think it would be pretty inconsiderate for me to divulge the details re: why the recommender was unable to write the letter but it seems like if I don't give them a reason why it wasn't submitted that it will look like my recommender refused to write the letter.
Is my best bet to reply with a simple "yes, please process my app without the missing LOR?"
