lsac needs to hire some more monkies to open up the mail and scan those letters.  i too have been waiting for too long for my second rec to show up.  only two weeks, but you know how it is.

Do we have any recourse for them taking over 4 weeks to process letters and not being able to send *&^% out in time?

@#!* LSDAS!!! I hope they all die and go to Hell!!  >:(

But only after they process my last LOR. ;D

It is getting pretty bad. Waiting 3 weeks is just brutal... especially when people are busting their asses to make EA deadlines.

i thought oct 1 was an appropriate deadline for my recommenders to send in their letters---lsac should at least post something(do they and i just havent seen it) that tells you to expect a month long delay

I don't really understand why it takes some longer than others.  One of mine got sent on 10/9 and was processed by 10/15.

Thank goodness my professor agreed to send his rec directly to the schools as well as LSDAS since the processing time is so rediculous right now.  You know, you'd think with all the money they collect from applicants registering for LSDAS they could hire enough extra people to handle this time of the year, kind of like retail stores who hire extra people for the christmas shopping season.

I am really annoyed at how long this is taking, also. I have been waiting for these stupid letters to get processed for a freaking month. I called last week, they told me to give it one more week. I called today they told me to fax them in if they do not show up in a day or two. However, that will still take up to 10 days.

I have been waiting for the letters to go through to send in all my apps, the wait game is driving me crazy, I can not even imagine how I am going to handle the decision wait game. At least the LSAC has been preping my patience level.

I just talked to LSDAS, and they told me it might take longer to process (more than 12 days)faxed LORs than mailed ones since they had to input them mannually.  It may be better to mail them again using a priority mail service (delivered within 2 days) if you think LSAC never received the LOR.
