Hello,

Would it be a bad idea to have two LORs from chemistry professors? Would some schools dislike this, or would it not matter? I have strong LORs from my PI and a physician, as well as a nonscience + service.

Why would anyone care if you have two letters from people within the same field. In what logical construct does that make sense?

In general, if it doesn't make any sense, it is a pretty good bet that it isn't true. I'd say, "when referring to the application process." But it is true in almost everything.

I'm too lazy to remember which school, but one wanted: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Social Sciences letters specifically.

Actually, I lied. Its Jefferson. I wasn't too lazy to remember.

Obviously you need to follow the directions if there are directions.

But otherwise, it doesn't matter.
