The title pretty much says it all. I’ve been pretty relaxed towards the recommendation letter deadline (asked at the end of November), but now there’s only 2 weeks left and out of 5 recommendations, only 2 have been submitted. Should I be this worried about it? How should I approach teachers and gently remind them to write the letters?
I’m worried that they might forget to write them, probably a factor in this is that last year when I applied, one of the recs didn’t come in till January 14th. One of the teachers is the head of the social studies department, so he’s very busy typically. Another is the only Latin teacher at the school, so he’s also very busy although these 2 teachers are the ones I think I’m closest with. However, I’m only kind-of close with the third teacher and my grades kind of dipped and were pretty bad at the very beginning, but improved a lot as I adjusted to high school and that reflected a lot in that class particularly.
Thank you! Happy New Year!
