Late recommendations..what to do? [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2011, 09:01
So after applying to 8 schools and feeling everything was under wraps, I began medical leave from work in order to prepare for a major upcoming operation. I recently found out, however, that my recommendations for Round 2 USC Marshall hadn't been submitted. They are now, but it's obviously quite late. My recommendations have been good- even prompting another schools' admissions director to write a personal note to me saying what a pleasure it was to read them...so I know the content of the letters and my profile should be enough to get in.

Any suggestions? I love the program and, despite letting this slide, am not the kinda guy who usually does. Any ideas would be incredibly helpful.

Thank you!

To ease your own anxiety, your best bet is to call Marshall and explain what had happened. Sure, the worse that could happen is to have your app be pushed back to round 3, but they just may say that it's fine to have it as round 2. I don't think anyone on this forum will be able to provide you with an answer that will reassure me, best be it from the adcoms themselves. Good luck!
