I don't think she'll get any helpful info if she calls today.  She said that the letters were SENT early last week and since LSAC reports a 10-14 day processing time UPON RECEIPT of the letter, she's still well within the reported processing time.

yup, since they just processed my other LOR and it was sent around the same time, they might get to my other one within the next couple of days.  I am antsy BUT I don't think I need to act on it right now.

I did end up calling LSAC after waiting for a month and basically had some version of this convo with them:

Me: I was wondering if you could tell me how long it takes to process LORs.
LSAC: 10-14 days upon receipt of the letter
Me: Well mine were sent about a month ago and still haven't shown up.
LSAC: What's your SSN, date of birth, and who is the recommender?
Me: [gives above info]
LSAC: Well, all I can tell you is that it hasn't been processed yet.
Me: Yes, I'm aware of that.  I checked my file status theis morning.  I was wondering if you could tell me when I can expect it to be processed or what I should do.
LSAC: Well, it hasn't been processed yet.

This went on for a little while, I got irritated and hung up.  Basically, the moral of this story is to ask to speak to a supervisor b/c the representatives are not very helpful. 

On a happier note, my last LOR was processed about 15 minutes ago!  I just got off the phone with LSAC after freaking out on them...I had one of my LORs resent (via fax this time) yesterday morning.  I asked if they could tell me if it was received and they weren't helfpul at first (the rep was like, "Well, we get hundreds and hundreds of faxes everyday, so I can't tell you if we've received it.  It's going to take around 10 days to tell you that"...again, I got irritated, and was like, "This is absolutely ridiculous...why can't you tell me?  I had to have this RESENT b/c my letter mysteriously vanished after I sent it FIVE weeks ago..." then she asked for my info, put me on hold, comes back and goes "Oh, it was processed three minutes ago.")

I called LSAC about my missing LOR earlier this week with essentially the same response as Kristay. Had my recomender, who is 400 miles away, resend his LOR after recieving a new waiver from me. The new letter was sent via priority mail lthis afternoon, figure around mid-week I'll call LSAC and see if I can get things moving.
