Hello,

Like many other applicants, I'm in a position that I'll need to write my own recommendation. The recommender probably won't even see it. And to make matters even worse, she doesn't speak English.

So my question is, do admissions people call recommenders? If yes, that would definitely be an awkward moment for her.

Most of the time they will not call the recommender, however what i would suggest is to discuss your recommendation with your recommender. She doesnt have to write it but atleast be aware of what is going in the recommendation. even b school admin people know that recommenders are mostly busy with their occupation and no one can spare enough time to write the recommendation themselves.

They will not call your recommender but you should have her involved in some capacity. Whether it is reviewing what you wrote, giving you talking points, or at the very least a conversation. Most schools can be fairly savvy at identifying questionable reviews so be cautious here
