I was talking to a teacher who wote some of my rec's when he mentioned "so I guess you're going to 'So-and-So U'." It turns out he didn't send out any RD recs because he thought I was definetly going to this college I applied EA to. EA! It may be partly my fault for not reminding him to send them in, but I NEVER told him I was definetly going to this EA school.
So I have to ask, does this ruin my chances for the colleges I applied RD to, considering my app isn't complete well after the deadline? I sure hope not...

I think under the circumstances you should probably call the admissions offices for your RD schools and at least let them know what happened and ask if all is well. Problem therein is that involves telling them you got in EA, but I guess just be sure to make it a point when you talk with them that [blank] school is very high on your list but [excuse]... such as you didn't get to visit or you needed to compare financial aid, etc. ;P

You could be bold and wait until mid-February, when colleges usually send out their "We're sorry your application is incomplete" card, then have your teacher send in your recs then and claim they were lost in the mail the first time.

Very nicely ask the teacher to send the rec in ASAP. Your app is what is due Jan 1. The colleges have tons of ancillary stuff drifting in all through the month. Get this in as soon as possible because some schools will simply review a file with just one rec and not bother to try to collect it. At this time you do not need to call the college or anything. Many files are incomplete. Just get the thing in quickly.

I would suggest (of course) still having your teacher send them in ASAP. You could certainly call or e-mail the admissions office and explain without mentioning anything about your EA acceptance explain about a "mix-up" or something of the sort. Though, if the only schools that haven't received your letters of recommendation are ones you're applying Regular Decision to, I would imagine the schools are just starting to open and sort mail, so a call to the admissions office is not crucial.
