klairsee Posted September 2, 2011 Share Posted September 2, 2011 I'm not sure what to do and I thought perhaps someone here has had the same problem. I asked all of my references for letters in the last week of July and submitted CASPA on 8/3. Kind of late, I realize. Everyone agreed to send their letters before September 1st because that was my first application deadline. Two of my references sent their letters in about a week ago but this one person didn't do his. Between July and now I sent the guy two reminder emails and I dropped by to visit him a couple of times (it's a rather low-volume pharmacy) including the day before the reference was due and he promised he would sent it on 9/1. Well, I waited all day and he never submitted it. I don't know what to do. I gave him every opportunity to tell me he couldn't do the reference and he indicated that he would have no problem. I know that he has pretty ample free time outside of work. I just can't understand how or why he would miss the deadline. Has anyone had this problem? How do I approach the person without making them mad and getting a crappy letter? Since I had two letters sent in before the September 1st deadline, I think my application will still be reviewed but I still need that 3rd letter asap and I'm afraid this cat and mouse game could go on for a while.
