Bonkers Posted January 15, 2011 Share Posted January 15, 2011 My last recommender has completed writing my letter. I know that because (1) we lunched together when I was in town for winter break and we discussed how she was putting on the finishing touches (2) she sent out the letters to half of the schools, leaving the second half for later. Like many out there, I have spent the last 6 months doing NOTHING BUT working toward my graduate school applications: studying for the GREs, writing the mission statement, and finishing up my current research to send it in as a writing sample. It has been flippin' exhausting (particularly the part where I try to push my research paper to be semi-ready for sample submission). My last recommender is not turning in ANY of the letters on time (with delays up to one month) and is still not done! She has HALF completed... Because we are somewhat close, I have called, emailed, and texted... she tells me she is going to get them done. Don't get me wrong, she is really supportive and has nothing but good words to describe me. I just feel defeated and tired and sad. I feel like somehow this is my fault and I should have lied about the deadlines to get things going. What else can I do? What else can I say to motivate her? I am not getting any younger... I can't wait another year to apply... and wait for another half year on top of that to start grad school. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
