    I have letters from two science professors, a dentist, and an employer. Do I need anymore? Thanks

    Should be sufficient for most schools. However, some schools have certain other requirements (i.e. Columbia wants 3 Science letters) so I would check with each school you plan on applying to.

    I had the same question. For ex., Pittsburgh requires 3 science letters from prerequisite classes for individual letters but they said a committee letter from my undergrad in lieu of these letters is acceptable.

    I hope this information is accurate because I finished undergrad 7 years ago and most of my teachers are gone, but the school is writing a committee letter for me anyway. I am doing exactly what you are and sending those letters to my school to be included in the committee packet (2 science teachers, 1 boss, 1 dentist). Let us know if you hear of anything else that changes things.
