Most of the schools I'm applying to have received my LORs. The exception: the one from my physics professor. He claims to have sent them 2 weeks ago, yet not one single school has one on file. Okay, maybe some mail mishap is to blame. Or is it? I knew that my friend who applied last year had some hassles getting him to send his letters, but I'm finding out now that my friend had to give him envelopes 5 freakin' times! Finally, in November, my friend had him fax the letter in. How can I keep this from happening to me? I want to put pressure on him to send the letters right now, but I don't want to piss him off so that he'll deliberately screw me. I need this letter for one of my two science recommendations. I'm not a science major, and my other prereq professors are either retired, or no longer teach at my school.
