Faxed LOR Yesterday and Still Not There... Advice?!

Postby louboutin » Wed Feb 10, 2010 2:01 pm

OK. So I had my professor send in an additional LOR yesterday via fax. He faxed it around 1 p.m. central. It is now 1 p.m. eastern where LSAC is. Is this normal? Should I call? Did I have the right fax number (1-215-504-1444)? I want this LOR to get there ASAP because I'm afraid the school might make a decision on me any day now.

Sometimes it can take a few days for them to process your letter. I'm sure it's busy at LSAC this time of year.

+1. faxed around 1 pm EST yesterday. I wouldn't worry yet, especially considering the weather.

I'm in pittsburgh and the city is completely shut down due to the snow. Nothing is open, buses aren't running, and no one is at work. Philly got hit worse than we did. Surely the LSAC is closed, and has probably been closed all week.

Historic snow storm.

I wouldn't worry about it yet. It will probably take the LSAC a couple days to catch up on the backlog when they do get back to work.

I had my recommender fax the LOR in on a Thursday afternoon, and it was processed on a Saturday afternoon.

A lot of admissions offices are closed right now, too. So, don't worry. They will be just as behind as LSAC once things get going again.

bump. STILL Haven't heard anything. Been almost a week. Should I call LSAC? Don't want to bug them if they are still processing, but I'd also like to get this process going.

they wont give you an answer that you cant figure yourself i.e. if its not on your LSAC they dont have it processed yet. They wont tell you if theyve received it until they process it.. thats my experience at least.

I went through the same thing. THey will just keep telling you they don't have it until it pops up on you screen on the LSAC website. I think when you call they ask you your LSAC number and look on your web page. If it isn't there the person who answers the phone doesn't look any farther.
