I submitted round 2 apps last week. My recommenders said they’d get them done by end of December. So long as they make it before the deadline I should be fine right? Only asking cause CBS said to get it done within 3 weeks of when I submitted or they’ll throw my app out

Can confirm if you list specific schools, but I submitted all my apps before recommenders submitted recs: HBS/GSB/Booth/Kellogg/MIT/Wharton/Yale/Tuck

helpful

5 interviews. Only Booth released yday. No go there so far.

Just want to know if other schools do this as well?

I am sure you are already doing this but keep following up and be very explicit with the recommenders about dates. My 2 cents would be to tell them that you require them to submit for your app to even be considered. Provide them an earlier date not the actual final date.
