It’s January 11, and with the deadline only four days away, I’m sure that many of you are wrapping up your applications. I have had a few conversations lately that make me want to bring out a point regarding on-line recommendations. Please don’t wait for your recommenders to post their letters before you submit your application. It’s important that you get the application to us before the deadline. We know that recommenders are often (choose one) busy, out of town, procrastinators, forgetful. Once you have submitted the application, you can (and should) turn your attention to nagging them to submit the letters. We’ll consider your application to have been submitted on-time, even if a letter is late.
