    Ok, so I've been able to get 3 letters from my current science professors and my DO letter.

    My question is this.

    Will not having a LOR from a non-science professor hurt my application? I transfered in from a junior college and I took all of my non-science classes there and Im really afraid that very few of them will remember me, much less write me a good letter.

    All replies are apperciated,


    Well since most schools want to see science professor recommendations, I don't think not having a non-science letter can hurt you. But you dont need a non science faculty's rec if you're looking for one...you can get anyone...like the institution where you volunteered or the doc you shadowed, or anyone pretty much who can give them something about you other than your academic capability.
