recommendation reaching school before my app?
« on: November 12, 2007, 01:30:40 PM »
Is this a problem? If my teacher's recommendation to a school is sent there before I have sent in my own materials?  or will the file be started anyway?

I would call or email the school's admission's office. They might setup a file for you before your application arrives to deal with your letters.

Anyway I wish I had that problem... I'm having the oppose one right now. I'm ready to send (and have sent a few) applications but my recommendations haven't been processed yet and one of my recommenders hasn't even sent it to LSAC yet despite being 5 weeks after I gave him the stuff. Sent an email last week... no reply. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to badger them with another email or what to do.

I sent in Dean's Certifications two months before my apps, and they appear to have kept them/started a file as I went complete without issue.
I suspect that the same holds true for LOR. But you could call and check if your complete seems to be taking a long time

Alot of times you gotta ask the prof. several times.  I had to ask one like 4 times before he finally replied and said it was done!
