Hi all,

I'm applying to grad school in econ. I'm currently a year removed from undergrad. One of my econ profs told me at the end of a semester to feel free to ask him for any rec letter should I need it. I was the best student in his class and we talked after lecture hours often.

I emailed him several weeks ago asking for a rec letter. He said he would be happy to write one so I emailed him my materials and asked him to confirm which email I should enter in the app system. That was the last I heard from him. It has been a week and I have not received any sort of response.

Apps are due mid-Jan (he's aware of the deadline). Time to panic? Should I wait another week or arrange to visit him personally?
