The deadline to submit complete applications for one school was today and one of my recommenders sent the letter of recommendation to the incorrect school so now I have two major problems: 1.- It is past the deadline and one of my lors has not been sent. 2.- The letter that was sent to the incorrect school was addressed to the school he meant to send it to. What do I do?
Are schools firm with their deadlines? Are schools willing to let a professor resend a lor to correct his mistake?
Thanks a lot for your time.
Schools normally are fairly lenient about LORs coming in (up to a week or so) late. Of course it depends on the department, though I wouldn't stress about. Just email the graduate office and say the LOR was sent to the wrong address, but a new corrected mailing is on the way. I'm sure that happens frequently.
