I received a letter of rec. from a physician so I contacted Interfolio to check that it was signed (since it's a confidential letter), and they told me it has the physician's name, title, etc. typed at the bottom and his title, office address, and phone at the top. I have been unable to contact him because he is out of the country and this is the only thing I have holding me back from submitting my secondary apps. What happens when a school receives a letter with a typed signature at the bottom but not handwritten? Should I go ahead and submit?

Thanks for any advice you may have.
