I'm not sure if this has been covered, but I've looked around and I can't find it. Anyways, I was wondering what the deal on universities emailing when your application is complete and has been submitted for review is. I've received emails from three places, including one which told me a letter of rec was missing (now in) but I haven't heard from anywhere else and I'm getting jittery particularly because two of my recommenders were very late submitting (Jan 2nd and the 6th respectively). Are people receiving emails confirming their applications are complete or should I stop freaking out.... surely they would have emailed me to let me know my app was incomplete.
On a related note, are applications ever submitted for review before their complete? I'm wondering because I submitted 4 recs, and the one that was last (the 6th of Jan) was far and away the most important one. Would they see 3, say screw it, and ship it over?
Thanks for reading, sorry if this was a bit long winded for a 1st post, my nerves are on edge...
