I'd bet my left nut you're in at Georgetown, with some $. You're above their LSAT 75%, and LORs (supposedly, I'm a 0L) only matter at the margins, or if they say something actually negative about you. You're fine.

Nonacademic aren't ideal unless you're really far removed from the academic environment, but I doubt it'll play a large impact on your cycle. Keep working those profs for LORs and hope that they deliver at least passable LORs. Then submit your nonacademic with them to show more positives about you and hopefully that'll all balance it out.

Do you think applying Penn ED is worth it? Do I have a shot?

Is it worth adding an addendum about my LORs? Three professors have flaked out on me, probably because I haven't been there physically to ask them and it's easy to ignore emails.

Doesn't sound like an addendum from a student worth admitting (excuses and stuff). Just say fuck it and forget the addendum. The Spanish's advice on LORs was TCR.

That's what I thought. I'm still working on my professors but I don't want to delay my application because of one stupid fucking letter. I mean, when a professor say they'll write you a rec by a given date (that they gave you!) and they don't what more can you do? A couple of "I know you're busy but this is really important to me" emails...I'll try to call them tomorrow I guess and see what comes of it.

Don't worry about the LORs. You will be fine. You stand a decent shot at Penn ED.
