Applying with only 1 LOR
Posted: Mon Nov 15, 2010 4:58 pm
I started reading this forum pretty late and did not realize how much of a difference it makes to get your application early. I told my LOR writers to just get their letters in by Christmas and now I'm realizing that may be too late. I have everything else ready to go and one LOR writer mailed his letter in last week. Would it be better to apply to schools that only require 1 LOR with the one I have now before Thanksgiving or wait until later December and apply with 2? I keep going back and forth over which option puts more at a greater disadvantage (one LOR or applying later in the cycle).
