Need your input guys. I'm a Marketing major who graduated in the summer. I'm curious if I could go ahead and ask for a LOR from a professor of my graduating course where I excelled quite well. The reason I ask is because I'm barely even done with any science requirements and still haven't taken the DAT, but I'm worried she might forget about me if I wait for over a year!

If it's fine how do I go about this? Do I ask her to send the LOR to me or save it until I apply to DS? If its dated from almost a year ago will that be an issue?

you can ask her and have her submit it through a company called interfolio.com
i havent used it but i've heard of other people using it to store their LOR if they arent sure when they will need them. it costs $. good luck

You could also see if your school has a pre-dental advisor that could hold these on file for you.
