    Does AADSAS require that one of the LOR must be from a science faculty? I was thinking about getting LOR from one my of english teachers and one from a dentist. Do you think that will go over well?

    i think there are some schools that require non-science letter (nova and creighton and pbb more...) So i guess its a good idea to send it to aadsas, but at the same time, some schools (columbia) requires 3 science letters... so it is up to you.

    When I applied you could submit up to 6 letters. Those rules may have changed. I submitted 6. 2 of mine were science professors, 1 was a dentist (which looks good), and 3 were research scientists that I worked with directly (one the CEO of the cancer hospital where I did research). None of my LOR writers did I have for even one class. They were all in my research experience. That said, 3 should probably be science or dental related. Your english professor can send one too, but I wouldn't have them send it in place of a science professor.

    It's not about AADSAS.

    It's the schools that would want a LOR from a non-science faculty.

    An english professor's LOR would be fine, imo.
