Letter of Recommendation Question

Postby laballermvp9 » Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:34 am

One of my recommenders will be sending in their letter on the 10th as I requested, but I'm worried the other one won't. I sent a follow-up email to this professor yesterday but still haven't received a reply. I actually checked the schedule of classes for this quarter and discovered that her class has been cancelled, so I'm worried she may not be in the office and check her school email account. So what should I do if the professor does not reply by tomorrow? I searched online and discovered the professor's personal email account so would it be wise to send her an email to that address? Any responses would be appreciated.

This is insanely neurotic. You just emailed her yesterday. Chill out broseph.

Why do you need it by tomorrow? Also when did you first ask for the letter? Do you have anyone else you can ask?

Lol this letter would probably be better than any backup one I could get so I'll just be patient for another week or so. I also have the professor's cell phone number because I took an individual studies course with her. Don't know if/when I should resort to contacting her that way.

You should not.
