    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if 3 ophtho letters for my CAS is too much. The thing is, one is from my advisor (essential), and the other 2 are from big wigs that will definately write me good ones.

    However, I've heard many times that having a core rotation letter (i.e. surgery or IM) is important. I've also got a good letter from a medicine program director set up too.

    So which combination should I go with? 3 ophtho or 2 ophtho plus 1 medicine?

    Thanks!

    I know someone who sent 3 ophtho letters and matched at NYEE. Is that encouraging?

    I'm sure you'll be fine with 3 ophtho LOR's. At least you have the "Superstar DJ" gig in case something goes wrong. :)
