Hello! So obviously most schools recommend (or require) a letter of rec from a professor. I'm looking to apply to schools in California, and the three schools here only recommend a letter from a professor (though I do understand that it would be ideal to have a letter from a professor). My problem is, I don't know any of my professors very well! There is one professor that I have planned on asking but I'm not confident that he would agree to write me a strong letter. I do however have two optometrists and an employer who know me well and who are willing to write me a strong letter. My main question is: How detrimental would it be to submit three letters of rec (two optometrist, one employer) and not include one from a professor?
