Hi All! I hope I can get help in the following: (1) I am a non-traditional applicant (applying next year), working as a respiratory therapist and taking classes full-time. Is there a part on the application that we can write down the hours we work at jobs like that. Without my work, I cannot survive, but, in a way, I do believe my work has jeopardized my school work a bit. Will the admission committees take into consideration the exact hours one put in for work every day/week? (2) I noticed that most school requires a letter from a DO and 3 letters from science faculty (if your school has no pre-med advisory committee). Is this rule strictly enforced? My good recommendation will come my boss at the hospital, the person that I did research for and from a science professor. Do you think I can substitue them for the 3 recommendation from science faculty? Thanks a lot!
