    Just wondering, do you guys think a pharmacy school applicant should ask his or her adviser whom he/she only sees once a semester for a recommendation letter?

    Generally a letter of recommendation should be written by someone you've worked with, or someone who has a good idea of your skills. Perhaps an old manager or former professor would be a better fit for the letter of recommendation.

    My opinion is that if you get a LOR from an adviser, it's going to look like you had trouble finding people to write on your behalf.

    What could your advisor possibly say about you? Not a road I would want to go down personally.
