All of his teacher recommendation letters went out on deadline but in 9x11"envelopes with just one postage stamp, that we dutifully provided each teacher. Maybe one of them noticed and added postage but I'm too embarassed now to ask. Return address was our school's guidance office, and I've heard nothing from them so far. I'll call on Monday.
It was my fault but I'm too worn down to get upset about it. I only learned about it today when mailing something else in same sized envelope.
Does anyone know how the post office and colleges will handle these?
1. Return to sender (in which case we'll re-send in a larger envelope, with all the old postmarks in place, so colleges will see it was on deadline originally)
2. Colleges pay the extra postage due
Does anyone think this mistake is "dealbreaker" and he should get onto the phone about it with colleges? I don't but I want to hear if I'm being too blase.
MANY THANKS. Can't believe I did this...but I did.
