Some of you may be having recommender-induced-anxiety-attacks. All of a sudden your recommender is traveling, for example. What happens if they don’t get the recommendation in by noon on Wednesday?
We’re used to this. This is how we handle it:
We start to read your application if there is one submitted rec. We keep the online system open for a day or so after the deadline so, yes, we will accept late recommendations.
It’s your responsibility to make sure that your recs get submitted. We won’t notify you if they are not. We’ll just review your application with whatever is in your file.
