    I think I know the answer to this...just thought I would ask

    Would a letter from a Community Health professor serve as a basic science letter of recommendation?

    Thanks for your time,

    No. I do not believe so. Basic science = BCPM classes.

    ^I also agree. That sounds like a stretch.

    You could probably get away with that for some schools, but better safe than sorry...

    I had some tenuous LORs, so I just emailed and got approval from schools. Just shotgun email your schools with your list of LORs writers and ask if it's okay.
