100% ditto. Do people get gifts for their letter of recommendation writers after the process is over? Or is that too much?
seeing as how one of my letter of recommendation writers didn't send out my letter of recommendation to UT Austin until the 26th of February, even though she said she'd sent it out on the first of January, I'm not feeling the hug. I can't help but think I wouldn't be on the waitlist if that had been sent on time.
But I'm sure she and my other writers wrote fantastic recommendations. And they've all been great advisors throughout the process.
After I got my Yale admit I called my main advisor/letter writer and left him this ridiculous message that probably didn't make much sense but I remember saying that next time I see him he should brace himself for a big hug. He got what was coming to 'em then I got him and the rest of my writers little gifts of appreciation.
Yale Class of 2012ish
I'm taking out my letter writers to a really fancy dinner, great wine, all that stuff. Probably going to drop about $150-200 per person when all is said and done, but who cares? They've basically insured that my next 5 years will be awesome!
