    It seems there's all kinds of LOR threads flying around, but I tried searching, but didn't find anything on this, so...

    My school has a pre-med committee for LOR. I had to give them 4 teacher LOR, and then they make a composite letter. However, they do not send the teacher letters like it appears that other schools do. They simply send their letter and a rating.

    It looks like some schools say they accept a committee letter or x teacher letters. But others don't mention a committee letter. Since I do not have access to the teacher letters that were used to do the composite letter, do I need to get more teacher letters to send out? Or will most schools accept a committee letter only even if they don't specifically say it?

    Thanks

    Case's application asks for "the individuals... and/or the Premedical Committee that will submit letters on your behalf." I don't know about the others, because I didn't apply to them. Try starting a thread asking about those schools' LOR requirements with the school names in the thread title. (And check their websites first, sometimes there's info on there that gets ignored.)

    Thanks for that info.

    I did check their websites, but I didn't spend too much time, so I might have missed the info in a spot where I didn't think it'd be. Since there's a lot of schools, I think I may just visit my premed advisor. I'm not used to actually having to leave my room for info. ;)
