    I submitted my app in June

    my 4 LORs are 1 dentist, 3 profs.


    yesterday I got an email from Midwestern AZ that said:

    -----------------------------------
    We are writing to inform you that as of today, your application is incomplete and is missing the following document(s) to complete your file:
    Letter of Recommendation from a Pre-Health/Dental Advisory Committee
    Please remember that in order for your application to be considered further in the admissions process, you must submit all of the required information to complete your file. Only applicants who submit all of the required documents prior to our deadline date are reviewed and considered for potential entrance into the program.
    ---------------------------------------

    But on their website it says :

    Submit three letters of recommendation. One must be from either a pre-dental advisory committee OR a science professor. The others, preferentially, should be from either someone with a DO/MD, DDS/DMD degree and/or someone who can testify to the integrity and ethical standards of the applicant



    So whats going on ? I dont have a committee letter

    Just call them and sort it out. there's been another thread recently within the past few days that talked about multiple ppl having issues with the LOR from MWU AZ.
    if you email/call, they'll take care of it

    Same thing happened to me. I called them and the girl manually updated everything for me. I refreshed the internet page (on their secondary app website) and my app was complete! Just call them :)

    Hm that's weird. Well, I did this about 2 weeks ago so maybe before it wasn't a glitch and now it is. I guess if it's a glitch, then it's happening for everyone so you don't have to worry.
