The application process will show which sections have been completed and what still needs to be done. Due to letters of recommendation getting spammed or sent to other folders in some emails, we strongly suggest you be attentive to the person you have requested and email them directly if your letter has not returned to your profile for submission. Remember you will not see the letter itself, but you will receive a check mark next to the progress of recommendation in your profile.
