grrr... so my very last LOR, the one that is the most important to me, has been lost somewhere in the great US postal system or the black hole of the reference letter center of my ugrad school. i gave it to the recommender all priority mail pre-postaged and everything 2 weeks ago (she was out of the country and this was the soonest i could get it -- eek! ) and she told me she sent it out last thursday! THURSDAY! priority mail should only take like 2 days! anyway, so to make a long rant short, i have completed a bunch of secondaries as long as three weeks ago and i haven't sent the LORs to go with them. YUCK! hopefully this won't screw me over too badly. so yeah. that's my rant. i am currently trying to contact that last person and get them to re-send it. lovely. the really annoying thing is this letter is the one that validates all my yadda-yadda-yadda-my-clinical-experience-stuff, so without it, all my essays about the time spent at that place are going to seem like fluff. anyhoo. i'll stop ranting now. any peace-inducing thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
