      I doubt it. One of the letters I'm waiting for I requested from her back in the middle of May. I have been to her office several times...bought them all coffee and bagels, desserts and muffins.

      Its like im having to kiss azz and bug these people incessantly to hurry and finish these stupid letters and SEND THEM!!!!!!

        I would do the same thing as they're doing. I'd keep holding the finished letters untill I was sure that I wasn't going to get any more stuff. So my advice, stop bringing them lunch and they will have no incentive not to turn in your letters :laugh: .

          hahaha....that would be pretty pathetic if she ("she" by the way is a D.O.) was so hard up that she wouldnt turn in my letter just to get a few dollars worth of breakfast sweets. LOL

            You're not the only one that has problems. I didn't know about Interfolio when I applied, so I had several professors sending out letters to a couple of schools each. Believe it or not, there are three letters that NEVER made it from the time I requested them in June of 2005 until now. Fortunately, they didn't come into play because I got into some schools anyway. Still, you would probably never think that the professors I asked would take soooooo long for such a simple task. I gave them envelopes that were already stamped and addressed, copies of my tanscript, notes from the classes they taught me, and a resume of my last few years. The only thing I didn't do was write the letters myself and simply ask them to sign them. Don't laugh, though, because I know people who have had to do that to get an LOR. This is probably the one thing, I think, more than any other that tends to hold up applications. :scared: :luck:
