    UHCO says on the website:

    * Three academic letters of recommendation from undergraduate faculty members familiar with the applicant's work
    * OR
    * One pre-health professions committee letter of recommendation.

    I know most schools follow this same criteria. I was wondering if I was using the pre-health professions committe letter (which is basically a compiled letter from 3 different people) does it matter who the letters are from. The reason I'm asking is because I heard that UHCO only allows professors, and I am getting the letters from 1 professor, 1 TA, 1 instructor (she's not a professor), and an optometrist.

    That should be fine.. youre allowed to have one letter from a Ta, but it has to be co-signed by the prof of the course. I also know of someone who had an adivsor write one of her required LOR. Good luck :) applying to opt school is sooo fun! lol.... :thumbdown:
