This is what I get for implementing a no-call rule to avoid being obnoxious. I called Mt. Sinai b/c I never got a complete notice and they should've had my letters 6 weeks ago, and they said they never received them. This is the second school to tell me that recently, when I know that my letters were sent in mid-September. If Harvard can manage not to lose my letters even though they arrived a month before my secondary, how can these schools lose them when they know to expect them?!?!? Now I feel like I wasted $105 dollars. :( If I'm not complete until mid-November at Sinai, am I out of luck?

I hear you... I called four schools today and each managed to lose each one of my four letters of recommendation... Mt. Sinai... I couldn't even check today because they only allow Mon-Wed 2-4pm for application status check... I want to scream
