Is anyone seriously sending 1 physics, 1 chem, 1 bio, and 1 humanities letter (4 total) to Jefferson?

I've heard people got interviews & acceptances without these. The requirement seems somewhat presumptious; is anyone actually complying?

Anyone got interviews without each of these four??

any answers would be appreciated

Once again, I've got to ask, if you're getting a committee letter from your school, do these requirements still hold?

I don't think they're very strict about having each kind of LOR. I only had 2 bio, 1 volunteer, 1 personal, and 1 from the premed advisor and I got an interview. Don't worry. :)

If you look carefully on their website, it says you need all that "if possible." Even though I was not invited for an interview there last year, my file was still "complete" even though I had 3 biochemistry LOR's and one from my english teacher. I plan on sending 2 biochem this year and one from a physiology/gross anatomy teacher from the graduate work I did.

I did not have all 4 (had bio, physics, and humanities). I substituted a doc I shadowed for chem. I got an interview and was waitlisted.
