Does anyone else hate asking for them? I'm filling out internship applications and had to ask for two letters for each app. I always feel like I am inconveniencing the person and then if they say yes, I always worry about getting all the paperwork in on time. Sometimes the people I ask are great and send it in right away, but sometimes they wait until the last minute and I am constantly on my toes! I ALWAYS appreciate when someone does a letter for me, but this has always been stressful. Soon I'll have to ask for letters to apply to grad/med schools. That should be fun! Right now one of the professors I asked for a letter said she would do it, but she is not very good with answering emails. I still have until next Tuesday to get everything for the application in, so I will try to stop by and see her in person. Everything else for the application is done, but I always worry when I rely on other people! In the end I know everything will get sent on time, but it never ceases to be nerve wracking for me! Funny thing is that whenever I've been asked to write a letter of recommendation for someone, I never mind. I don't get why I still feel like it is an inconvenience for others! I do have a backup who already has a letter written that she submitted for another application, but I still worry!
