    Hello, I heard that we need to have 2 letters from science faculty and 1 from humanity faculty, is that true? I been having trouble getting letters from humanity faculty because I only took two humanity courses in the last 2 years.

    Depends on the school, and they may or may not be flexible on the requirements.

    1 letter from your pre-med committee can usually replace the 2 science/1 humanities requirement.

    my school does not have a premed committee that I am aware of. I can get strong letter from nurses I've been working with or my research director, but they are not school faculty.

    you may want to email a couple of schools to get their opinion, but I think that the outside letters should be ok to substitute for a humanities professor.

    You definitely should try to get a humanities letter....Alot of schools require it, but you may be able to write them a letter telling them why you cant get the humanities letter and they may let you slide.
