So AADSAS has implemented new rules for the next application of a maximum of 4 LOR or one letter from a pre-health advisor/committee and one additional letter. So if you choose the 4 letter option are the letters from:
2 science profs
1 non-science profs
1 dentist
?
And the other option is the second letter from a dentist?

Thanks and good luck in '08

that sounds pretty standard. personally, i wouldn't want 6 or 7 letters if i had to read them.

some schools require 3 science letters, and almost no school requires a non science (or non that i applied to). so i submitted 3 science letters and one dentist letter last year, and that was good enough for every school i applied to. the non science can't hurt, but make sure you don't need 3 science letters

i know that columbia and BU requires 3 science LORs. How would this affect their respective requirements? would we have to send the LORs directly to them? or will they modify their reqs to match aadsas

not true! while I was doing research about dental schools, i realized I couldn't apply to quite a few just because I didn't know any non-science professors. A lot of schools require it, but not ALL. I think people should send 2 science, 1 non-science, and dentist to AADSAS. Then, for the schools that require a 3rd science letter, just tell your professor to send directly to that school. Of course, you'll have to provide lots of stamps and envelopes that way.
