I have a dilemma... I have 3 letter on hand. One from a research year I spent at National Eye Institute, one from Neurology and one from Pediatrics. The thing is that I'm getting mixed advising from my ophtho chair and my student affairs dean. Ophtho chair is saying that 1 ophtho letter from NEI will suffice since the last time I had any contact with my own school's ophtho department is over a year ago and I didn't really get a chance to work with anyone closely. His argument is that it won't be a spectacular letter and since I have an ophtho letter alrady, it won't really matter. My dean is saying that not having an ophtho "department letter" will raise a "red flag" in my application... It would be great if you or anyone you know have an opinion from the inside regarding this issue. Thanks for your help!!
