Some schools have said that they'll take additional documents. I might write a couple of "why X" statements. But, right now I'll probably just get a third recommendation. I asked a prof last year to write me a rec for two schools that I was WL'ed at - but I have no clue whether he actually did it. I'll e-mail him asking him to send that rec to my held schools. I want to ask him whether he sent that rec in to my two WL'ed schools last year so I know if I can trust him to do it this year - but it just all seems so awkward. I have to meet with my advisor in a couple of days, I should probably just ask him to do it.
