I recently got an email from UCLA saying one of my recommendation was submitted. I sent a thank you note to my recommender for this and discovered an unpleasant truth.
He told me that he actually wanted to submit Darden but acidentally submitted UCLA. Here's what happened - He did his recommendations on a word doc. When it came time to copy them onto the application online, he actually copied darden's reommendation into UCLA's page and submitted it. Clearly both colleges have different questions and i am seriously worried that the way he copy pasted stuff would not make sense.
He told me that he is not able to make ammendments anymore. Apparently he emailed the admissions committee informing them the issue. However iam getting very uneasy about this. The deadline is on the 11th and i'll be flying on a buiness trip that day. I need to complete my applications by end of monday. Ad com wont reply till monday.
Should i also email the Adcom myself?
BTW it also occurred to me if it'll be alright to open a new application on a different email Id with the same recommenders and complete it ASAP. It is possible for me to finish it since all that i need to do is to copy paste stuff from my old application.
Please advise, am getting desperate!
Calm down. I don't thin admission committee would hold anything against you in this case. Complete rest of the application before deadline. On Monday, call them and explain situation.
My suggestion: I don't think you can start new 'online recommendation'. Ask AdCom if they will accept e-mail recommendation. If yes, you can ask your recommender to submit recommendation through official e-mail ID.
I am ready to fall, but not before I fly.
