One of my favorite lecturers replied to my email for a letter of recommendation. She said no the first time I asked her because she only had a M.S. and she felt that I would have a better chance if I were to ask someone with a PhD. She knows me pretty well and I found her class to be really enjoyable. I sent her all my materials, hopefully she finishes it in time. I'm not sure what to do about the fellow who completely blew it. Hopefully, everything becomes a lot clearer towards the end of next week.
