However, letters of recommendation are very heavily weighted in the application process. You risk a bad letter of recommendation from your current research advisor if you do not complete your master's project in a timely manner.

I had talked about it and he had no problem writing a letter of recommendation. It's just i might not be able to finish dissertation before deadlines of some universities(those early deadlines - Dec./Jan.). Even if i defended the thesis, it would take time to receive transcripts. My concern is that my profile might be considered inadequate.
