    Does anyone have a list of the number of letters of recommendation required for individual medical schools? I did a search on SDN and could not find anything. I know most require three and Harvard requires 6(!). Any other schools need more than three?

    Keep in mind that schools like Jefferson also only require one simple committee LOR if your school does that. In that case, all you have to do is satisfy your own premed committee's LOR requirement, which may be fewer than, say, Jefferson's individual LOR requirement should you not have a committee.
