LOR moment of panic

Postby leche » Mon Nov 07, 2011 8:39 pm

I just printed out the LOR forms and gave them to my professors - I didn't sign them! Am I screwed? Should I contact them and say "I'm an idiot and I still need to sign it?"

Shouldn't be a problem. Just send them a quick e-mail.

Saying what? The place where it needed a signature was waiving the right to read the letter after you have been accepted and enrolled, so I stupidly didn't think that was necessary. Now I've been reading that it just assures the professor that you won't be able to read what they've written. But is it actually necessary?

You can also scan them a copy that you've signed and have them submit that.

It's not necessary, but it would work to your benefit to do so. Either email them a .pdf copy or bring it to them. Don't panic.
