I provided references of two Professors from my previous University. I talked to them before supplying the references.
I believe, the universities sent some Emails asking them for some kind of confidential report. They are procrastinating responding to the Emails from the universities I applied to.
They are not even responding to my calls and mails:
- I contacted them last week of December to let them know about the reference.
- Sent SMS text on 11th January after I had submitted the application.
- I also sent them personal Emails on 15th January.
- Called them on 18th January.
I believe the last date is 31st January.
How can I get around problems like this in future?
Is there any formal way to submit applications without references?
