Can Recommendations Be Submitted a Little Late?

By - Nov 20, 11:46 AM Comments [1]

Some candidates ask whether they can submit their applications for a certain round even if their recommendations come in a day or two late. Here’s the answer: most schools will consider the application incomplete if everything is not submitted by a deadline, including the recommendations. If a recommendation is submitted even a few hours late, your application will likely bounce to the next round. During Round 2, that would not be great, because for the vast majority of schools, Round 3 is generally not a good time to apply. So approach your recommendation writers early enough to ensure the recommendations are submitted by the deadlines!

Good luck in the admissions process!
