Hello all.

I have recently applied to 4 schools (MCG, MUSC, Mercer and Barry). All of my application materials are in except my references! I have been assured by 3 out of 4 of my writers that their letters have gone out or are going out very shortly (after a polite reminder email of the deadlines).

I have heard that some schools have a less strict deadline for references (Mercer and MCG deadlines are Nov 1) than they do for other application materials. Is this true? Will I not be considered this year if my letters are late?

Just freaking out a little... any thoughts/experiences would be great!
