Yes, another LOR thread. I couldn't find the information I need through searches. If there's a thread or resource I clearly overlooked, someone please post a link. My situation: My school has a pre-med committee. All the professors who know me will get together and fill out an objective evaluation; ie, lab performance, punctuality, intellectual potential, etc.. I'm also supposed to pick one professor who will serve as a character reference. I know that the objective evaluation and character reference have been sufficient in the past for people trying to enter the state school. I plan on applying to about 10 other schools, some top tier. My questions: 1) How many recommendations, in addition to my character reference, are the norm? 2)How do I include these recommendations in my AMCAS application? I need practical, straightforward advice from people who have been through this. I don't know what is acceptable in terms of seeing what my professors write about me. Am I supposed to ask for letters in writing and then scan them, convert them into PDFs, and then add them to my AMCAS?? Your advice, please.
