Ludwig von Dracula Posted December 7, 2010 Share Posted December 7, 2010 I'm applying for a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology, so I asked the 3 ethno profs at my university for recommendations about a month ago (one of whom is my supervisor, and all of whom have taught me in class). Supervisor and prof 2 got everything in with time to spare. Prof 3 (a fairly big name in our field and definitely the best-known at our university) expressed immediate willingness to write. I mentioned it a few times again in person over the last few weeks, and sent a reminder email 3 days before the first due date. No response. On the due date, I sent another reminder. I then learn that Prof 3 has just left the country, either for Europe or Africa, and nobody has any contact info other than an email address. I've sent out a few more panicked emails in the last 3 days from various accounts. 2 due dates are past, 1 is fast approaching, a few more in about a week. I still really want this recommendation, but...aargh. Now I'm trying to decide who else I can ask for emergency's sake. Or should I try storming the gates at the department to try to get a cell phone number so I can interrupt this prof on vacation? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
