  1. As you pointed out, I noticed that many schools accept late LoRs. But the fact that admission committees did not raise any issues regarding late LoRs in the past does not necessarily mean that they will take the same action this year. This is why I sent the email to those three schools. Your explanation about why my professor was upset was very helpful to understand her perspective. But, as you said, I still believe it is true that she did not fulfill her duty to write the letter (if she does not want, she should have clearly told me that she could not write the letter, so that I could find ot
