    When I went to my interview they asked me for a letter from another science professor. I gave them a letter from a general bio professor and a physics professor. As well as one from a dentist and one from a professor I did research with. I got in so I don't know how strict they are about the chem letter.

    I had one letter from Biochem Professor, under whom I researched for 2 years. One from a Physics professor, and one from a Microbiology Professor.I doubt it if they are very strict about the letters. If you need any other info. I will be happy to share it.

    Ali,

    Tufts is very strict about the letter requirements.

    You must get:
    1 letter from biological sciences professor
    1 letter from physical sciences (physics, biochem and chem) professor.
    1 from outside source (dentists, research, etc.)

    I had to get an additional letter from my old chem professor even though I already gave them 5 good letters. So get your letters if you want to get into Tufts!

    I had 2 letters from bio professors and 1 from a chem professor. I have already received my acceptance letter. Is it possible they would still want another letter from an outside source?

    I doubt it, if they will ask you for another letter, as you have already gotten accepted with whatever credentials you gave them before. I hope to see you in Boston this Aug then....
