Oh well. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts..
I spent months working on my LOR people to get their recs in. I made the mistake of giving them TOO MUCH time to complete them (i.e. sent out in May, gave Dec deadline). I was trying to be way ahead of the game, but they just simply forgot about them. I had to email/call at least once a day until they finally finished. It's just not as important to them as it is to us. I'd stay on them - be nice, and they should complete them promptly. Good luck!
I'm applying today/tomorrow. Most of my apps were completed before today, but I needed the time off during the holiday to go through last minute checks of everything - I read a few too many horror stories about sending the wrong PS to the wrong school. Talk about disaster.
