So W&L requested my report, but it says its on hold "Pending receipt of letter(s) of recommendation"

So whats the point in applying now?


P.S. 7 days since LOR was sent..blah

My LORs aren't even written yet, but I'm applying just to get it out of the way.

That's good -- I'm now on day #24 since one of my letters was mailed. I think I'll get him to fax it as well, just in case.

I dont think its a coincidence that a school requested my report and then BAM the LOR was there...I think they must expedite LORs when reports are waiting (happened to lexy too i think)

yeah, i'm on day 22 waiting for my rec letter >:(
it was so hard to finally get my prof to send the letter out that i am dreading having to ask him to fax it as well, and then what if I have to wait another 3 weeks after that???!!! this is so frustrating!

I've applied to a bunch of schools since mid-September and no progress yet.

I thought things would go faster after I bitched at them a few days ago -- one of my letters showed up right away. But it could've been due to a backup copy of the letter being faxed a week before it appeared on LSAC.

I am still waiting on one that was sent the first week of September. Maybe since I have the W&L report on hold as well, they'll speed things up.

Wow, that is crazy. I had about a one week wait time from sending the letter to it showing up on LSAC. I would not tolerate a 20 day wait. I would call LSAC. They were very helpful when this kind of thing happened with my transcripts. The person I spoke to gave me their contact info, so I was able to mail it direct to him and then it was taken care of within 2 days.

Definitely call LSAC and see what the hell is taking so long.
