I am applying for a very important MSc position which requires a reference.
Through an email conversation, my old professor said,
Should you require a reference please do not hesitate to ask
I followed him up thanking him and saying yes. It will be very appreciated for the upcoming application.
However due to getting an interim transcript sorted out, I have not been able to finalise the application until now, almost 3 weeks later.
Should I go ahead and submit the application as he is already aware? Remind him I'm about to submit and wait for his response? Or tell him after I've submitted?
I understand professors are very busy, so the last thing I would want to do is pester him.
