My supervisor had provided recommendations to all the schools I applied to. Just got to know this morning that he was let go.

What now? Will this affect any of the verification processes? If the adcom/vendor tries to reach him on the numbers/e-mail ID I had provided, he may not be available.

Do I have to inform the adcom about this? I'm still waiting for interview calls from all the schools that I applied in round 2.

It's not your fault! just contact the adcom and explain.

You don't need to call anyone. Once you get in, you can figure it out. Some schools don't even have a verification process. You will be given a chance to provide updated information if they have trouble reaching him/her.

Thanks Guys!

I'm going to refrain from contacting the adcom now. I hope I'll get a chance to explain and they'll understand! What he said about me in the reco is not going to change, right? So I guess I'll just put it to rest now and worry abt it later.
