Hi, so a recommender agreed to write me a lor and I requested it a month ago but the deadline is today and I have not received a confirmation that it has been submitted. I sent two follow up emails but my recommender has not responded to any of them yet. I decided to go ahead and extend the deadline for submission another week but at this point I honestly dont know what to do because I waited so long and trying to find a backup will delay the completion of my application. How many more emails should I send or how much longer should I wait before giving up and contacting a different recommender to write me one? Thank you in advance.
