Teacher Rec Problem

<p>I applied Early Action, and I asked my teacher at the beginning of October to write my recommendation. He agreed, and I asked him to have it in by the end of October because I would be applying November 1. He did not turn it in. Since then, I have asked him every single day to turn the recommendation in, and he still has not. Will this look bad on my application?</p>

<p>I'm sorry to be the one to break the news, but your application will not be considered for Early Action without the missing teacher's recommendation. Yes, it's that important. I would talk to the teacher on Monday and let them politely know the facts. You might be better off asking another teacher for an RD recommendation.</p>

<p>If he turns it in soon, you can still be considered for EA. They won't penalize you for a late teacher recommendation. If he doesn't turn it in at all, then...</p>

<p>Oh my God. I am so angry right now. Can I email the admin office and try to switch my recommendation to someone else?</p>

<p>Don't email -- call the Admissions Office . . . but only AFTER another teacher sends in your recommendation.</p>

<p>calm down, call the admission office and tell them your situation. you are not the only one, they will understand</p>
