does public health count as non-science? just wondering
Does engineering count?
I used a history professor from a study abroad I went on then did research with- I honestly feel that the humanities professors have better writing skills than many science profs so they can give you great letters!
I agree. I had an interviewer read all 6 of my LOR in front of me and it turned out my one anthropology professor wrote the best LOR of the bunch! All the science profs. just wrote a paragraph... Definitely hit up those non-science because they write great LOR's
By contrast, I've done very well in competitive science courses whose profs ended up knowing my name despite having 400+ students. When I've approached them for med school recs, I've gotten responses like "well, I can do it, but all I'm really gonna say is that you got an A and I saw you in office hours"
In short, humanities profs are sometimes your best bet!
