socaljournalist Posted November 6, 2009 Share Posted November 6, 2009 I posted yesterday about concern that my recommender was not going to mail the letter in time for the school to which I'm applying by the early notification deadline of Nov. 15. I had asked her to FedEx her letter to my letter service by YESTERDAY, and FedEx now tells me the letter is not in their system. After initially agreeing to update the letter she wrote for me last year, she has been unresponsive to my emails and phone message yesterday. I know intellectually that this is not the end of the world, because the letter she wrote for me last year (which I still have on file) is intended for the same graduate programs and I can easily use it. But I feel hurt that she - for whatever reason - is not able/willing to help me out this year. It's leading me to have snowball negative thinking about the entire application. Rationally, I know my admission does not hinge on my thesis adviser submitting a letter she wrote in 2008 versus an updated one (I have been out of school for 4 years), but it's hard not to freak out. Can anyone offer some consoling advice? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
