mlle Posted November 13, 2008 Share Posted November 13, 2008 Okay so I figured out a third recommender to ask (that was all in another question) and he said yes, thankfully. Now, what about thanking for the LORs? How and when? email or snail mail. is it a formal thank you note or a quick "thanks for the letter . . ." and I'm guessing you thank them after they send everything in, right? I've been through LORs the first time around for this masters but never quite figured it out :roll: And now there's another dilemma that's really completely separate from the question above but I don't feel like putting it in another post. How pushy is it okay to be when one of the ppl you're trying to get in touch with to ask for the LOR is completely MIA? I sent one of them an email about a month ago asking to arrange a phone meeting (I know it sounds weird but that's how people typically do it at this agency where I did my internship--this person isn't an on-campus prof, it's my practicum supervisor in another town). She never replied. A week or so later she emailed me a generic invitation to a conference and in my reply I added that I look forward to speaking with you soon, blah blah, and I still never heard from her. So this past Monday I called her office and got her voicemail and I said directly in the voicemail that I was calling about the possibility of her writing a letter of rec for grad school. I know it's only been a few days but I still haven't heard back from her. Is it obnoxious to call again before the end of the week? This doesnt surprise me bc she's very busy, but the application deadline is growing nearer and I really need to know if she's gonna do this for me. As I said before, I really don't have anyone else to ask if she bails on me. Sorry to make this long . . . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
