I got 2 of my letters from profs that I only had for 1 semester, my physiology prof and my biochem prof. Both wrote very strong letters (at least I assume so since some of my interviewers complimented me on my letters of rec). Pretty much I went to office hours a number of times, participated in class when I could, and did well in the classes. The biochem class was huge, the physiology class was only like 40 people. It is possible if you make the effort to get to know them.Originally posted by N1DERL&
Is it possible to get good letters of rec if you're doing a 1 year program?
I worry about whether or not I will have sufficient time with a prof.
elvin, glad it was helpful. Definitely don't underestimate the MCAT... I was very thankful that I had a very light load (easier science units + english composition) while I was studying for it. I am sure it could be done though, especially if you are a storng test taker in general. But I am glad I opted not to.Originally posted by elvingomez
thanx lone, thats exactly what i was looking for. and thanx for reminding me about the mcat, almost forgot that studying for the mcat and taking that load would be rather difficult
