New Letters of Rec

Postby bernadette1 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:10 pm

So i asked for three LORs for my applications this cycle (two profs; one work). Well I only recieved two (one prof and the work one) by december 1st which is when i submitted my apps. But the second prof just sent in the letter today. Is it too late to send the last letter in as well?

and would it delay my decisions? almost all of my files for the schools are complete.

If you only submitted applications two weeks ago then chances are they haven't even been looked at yet (files can go "complete" without anyone reading a word of them). I would send in the additional letter now, since schools like to see two academic recommendations, and I expect that your decisions will not be at all delayed.

I was in the exact same situation, only about a month or so ago. I just assigned the letter to all my schools, even the ones that were already complete or under review and a few days later all my status checkers updated with that prof's name. So far the timing for my cycle (considering acceptances and status checking movement in general) have moved just as you would expect based on the date I originally submitted.
