My question is, I'm leaving the country on July 30th, and I asked my professors to finish their letters or rec (okay, I was lazy about it) by the time I return (September 15th or so).

Should I send out secondaries (such as Cornell, which is the only invitation I've got so far) before I leave the country, or should I wait and send them out at the same time as I send out the recommendations?

Might as well send out the secondaries now. Of course they wont really look at your file until they get your letters of rec, but at least by the time you get back you will know for sure whether all the schools received your secondary forms or not.
