Teacher Recommendation help

<p>Help!
(Background: International student from a school where no one has applied to the US before)
I asked my teachers and guidance counselor for letters of recommendation way back in September. My teachers both asked if they could hand-write the letters, and said it would be okay for me to type them up, that they would read over them after (they aren't very technological so the typing would be a bit of a bother to them).
I thought that this would be okay, that my guidance counselor (who does this regularly for students applying to the UK) and I would just type the LORs into the commonapp and that would be it.
My school has one GC for 1,000 students, and she teaches, so I was unable to get a meeting with her to discuss the LORs until two weeks ago. We set the date for collecting the letters and typing them up.
I have not been in school this week or last to meet with my GC as I am quite ill. I also did not have internet access (posting from my phone) to download the teacher forms before my illness. The last day of term before the holidays (and the deadlines!) is Thursday.
I don't know what to do!
I feel like I'm springing all the extra questions on the kind-hearted teachers who wrote my LORs, who are already pretty busy atm with Christmas and exams anyways, and I don't even know if I'll be able to get the forms to them, or if my GC will be able to put all the info. in herself.</p>

<p>What do I do?</p>

<p>If you're part of the applications are in on time, I suspect that you have some leeway on the LORs coming in from an international student. If nothing else, contact the colleges and explain the delays. Either they will understand or they won't. You can only do what you have control over.</p>

<p>I'll email the colleges and see what they say, I guess.</p>

<p>So, now that the school term is over and all the important school documents are in the hands of my guidance counselor, how can I know that she has actually uploaded them to the commonapp?
I want to click submit asap.</p>

<p>I think that you can go ahead and click submit since you've completed your part of the application.</p>

<p>Thank you!</p>
