    I sent in my letters of rec a week ago (last wednesday) and it's the following wednesday now, and not one of the *10* schools I sent them has receieved them. They all told me to check back next week. While I'm almost positive they were actually sent out (i double checked), could someone from last year tell me how long it took them to receieve their confirmations/onlineupdates/emails that the schools got them? THANKS! :confused:

    Not only do they have to receive them, but they have to open them, and then get them into individual files, and perhaps log them into some sort of computer database. Imagine the volumes of mail they are receiving, and then picture the process of dealing with all of it. If you're this antsy, this soon, the next few months are not going to be pleasant for you. Find something to do to distract yourself.
