Letter of Recommendation Question

Postby TheSkipper » Sun Oct 31, 2010 6:45 pm

Hello,

Long time lurker, first time poster here.

I have submitted my applications, but one of my letters of recommendation is still processing. (The professor was lazy mailing it in. Its a good one though. All good things...)

Anyway, my understanding of the process is that my reports will not be released to the schools until all of the letter of recommendation requirements are met. This puts me in the position of just like, waiting for the things to process.

I submitted to many schools early decision, but my concern is that because my reports will not be released, I may not actually hit the deadlines.

So I suppose my question has two parts.

1) Is my understanding of the LSAC report process correct?
if it is
2) Is it totally unreasonable to ask the professor who was lazy getting it in to just fax a copy?

Thank you for your time.

They'll update your file automatically once the LOR gets in, assuming you assigned it to the school.

If you guys set a deadline and he's not meeting it, just send a friendly follow-up email with the fax number saying it'd be easier to do it that way.

Do you mean early action? Because a lot of early decisions would be interesting.

And likely to get you rejected by every school you applied to because they share this information with each other.
