    Right now, my committee letter packet includes:
    1) the committee letter written by my prehealth advisor
    2) a science professor
    3) my research mentor
    4) two physicians I have worked with
    5) a physician assistant
    6) a humanities professor
    Would it strengthen my packet if I switch out the physician assistant letter for another science professor letter?
    Ultimately, all that matters is that you submit letters from people who know you well and can vouch for your excellence. So that's all right, or you could switch out the letter. It's up to you.

      You need to check what the strictest LOE requirements are when it comes to science or physician letters. You get a little bit of leeway with a committee letter, especially if all the letters are included anyway. Quality is better than quantity (as noted by another poster).
