Recommendation timeline?

so one of the professors that is writing me a recommendation asked me when the application deadlines are and I made the mistake of telling him they are in the Spring. For some reason he set it as a goal to finish the recommendation by the early spring, besides my insistence that I actually need the recommendation within the next two, three weeks, not anytime before the spring. He will write me a good recommendation, but he just likes to set his own pace and play by his own rules (I can not wait to be out of school, so I will not have to deal with those people anymore!)

I was wondering if the schools will start reviewing my application if I have submitted everything with the exception of one of the LORs. If I have everything sent out by the end of Thanksgiving, but he sends the LOR around the end of December, when is my application going to be reviewed?

Thank you guys.

They will put your file in the queue for review if your application is complete without the letter. If not, no.
