Hi, everyone. I recently interviewed with my pre-med committee and tried to be relaxed, but I think I was a bit too relaxed, because they decided to give me a rating of "recommended highly". While this sounds fine on its own, this is actually a third tier recommendation at my school, below "recommended most highly" and "recommended very highly". The school also includes the rankings in their letter, so there is no chance that schools will just see "recommended highly" and think that is top/near top recommendation. Will this hurt my chances, since it is third-tier, or will they not care, since I am still recommended above the minimum? Thanks for everyone's input.
It would be far worse to not have the committee letter than to submit a letter that is 3rd tier out of 4 or 5 tiers.
