I know the general rule of thumb is 2 letters from a bio-chem-phys profs, but did anyone get in with a letter from a comp science prof?

I've accepted students who had a computer science professor letter among the other letters provided. Your focus is too narrow... think about the whole application.
the reason i ask is because i'm afraid that schools will reject just based on the fact i got a comp science letter instead of a hard science letter.

Do you not have a BCP professor letter secured? You have up to 4 letters to submit.
I have one BCP secured and one from a dentist and one from an employer. My 4th one is a computer science prof.
