agh423 Posted January 5, 2010 Share Posted January 5, 2010 Hey all- I am applying to grad schools (duh... ) and some of these schools require two (2) LOR's while the others require three (3). I asked two professors and a supervisor to write recommendations for me in mid-November. They all said they would do it and I sent the necessary instructions on how to go about submitting the letters. Flash forward about two months letter and only one of the three has submitted anything. I sent an e-mail to the other two last week reminding them that applications are due next Friday (the 15th). One of them responded saying he had been very busy and will get to it. I send some supplementary information his way so I am banking on him getting the recommendations in (he has asked and I have sent in a list of classes I took with him, what I researched, the grades I received, my resume and a personal statement). I haven't heard from the other professor, though. I am thinking that the other professor is still in winter break mode and will get to my e-mail hopefully this week (I hope!). I want to send another e-mail her week on Wednesday just wondering how things are going. This is where I need advice!! Should I just say something along the lines of "I just need to know whether or not you'll do this for me so I can look for another person if need be", "let me know so I can sleep easier", etc. Should I do this for the other professor, even though he has told me how busy he is? I'm freaking out!! Applications are due next Friday and I will be damned if I don't go to grad school because of things out of my control Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
