Hello, I recently found out from a school that one of my letters was missing. So I thought, no problem, I'll just ask my person to send his letter again. The only problem is that I just found out he is going to be gone for the next month! By then, the deadline will have passed and the school will throw out my application because of that one letter. OK, well I do have a way to avoid this situation, but its an ethically gray area. At one of my previous interviews, somehow somebody in the admissions office put a copy of my complete application in a folder for me that contained info about the school. Its one of those schools that gives out the embossed folders with info about financial aid, etc. I dont know how in the world my app ended up in there, but I was even more surprised to see that my letters of rec were in there too! I didnt notice that my app was in the folder (it was buried in the back behind a bunch of other stuff) until I got home. I was thinking that I could take this letter of rec (which is from the professor whose letter is missing at the other school) and just send it to the school. I know this is an ethical area which is better left alone but I dont know what else to do. I've already seen the letter and its a good one. If I dont send this letter to the school, they will cancel my app. What would you do in this situation? The school whose letter is missing is one of my top choices or else I would just have let this go.
