Hi, I am new to the job market. How crucial is it to get all your recommendation letters in before the start-to-review day?
Does SC look at the materials at all without the letters? I saw on interfolio, the submission will be flagged as incomplete if the letters are still pending… My letter writers are all very supportive and even agreed to write customized letters for each position, which means I have zero control on when those letters will be in. But I also heard stories that interview invitations were sent out to someone by SC without even receiving all his/her letters.
