how long before fax?

Postby vsl89 » Mon Oct 11, 2010 8:10 pm

so a prof of mine submitted a LOR for me on fri...i'm expecting it to reach tues since that was how it worked out last time. in case it doesn't (and i've recently read on here some horror stories of LORs tking 4 weeks..presumably b/c things are getting busier [or is it still too early to be all that busy with LORs]), how long should i wait before asking the prof to fax his letter?

I'd like to know the answer to this as well since I'm expecting a prof to fax in an LOR today and want to know when I should start bugging him if it doesn't post to my account.

My pre-law center sent my file to LSAC on a wednesday, LSAC potsed the LOR's by the following thursday...I would give it two weeks to process before your start bugging your prof.

They just posted last week...so this was all in a span of the past three weeks.
