I'm sure you had to enter in their contact info when you indicated who these people are - this contact info is used by the administration people / the application portal to nudge the recommenders. My old advisor said that, if a school is interested, they'll look to see why a letter isn't there.... so my impression is that it's not a deal-breaker.

    Another, less-optimistic note... I got my interview invites between late January and late Februrary, but my straight-up official rejections came so late that they were obvious. Unfortunately, the rejection was indirectly communicated through silence.
    Sorry, I meant they haven't probably rejected me because they have not yet received my complete application packet (since the recommendation is still missing).

    The second part is interesting. Maybe you weren't desk rejected and only rejected because some of the other candidate were somewhat better than you. My feeling is that desk rejections come pretty quickly. I could be wrong.
