    Well, here's my dilemma. NYMC requires that one of your letters of rec be from a professor in the department you're majoring in. I only have 3 letters, 2 from science professors, 1 from a humanities professor. My major however, is in IT. I'm taking the majority of my IT classes this semester. The two I had previously taken were taught by the same professor, and he transferred. Anyone know if the will they be flexible regarding this policy if I explain my situation? Thanks

    Since they seem to give a considerable amount of attention to this in both the secondary application and the directions, I doubt they will be very flexible (although I could be wrong - you should call NYMC). I would try contacting your university and finding out where your IT professor went. I'm sure you can track him down.

    I am having the same problem. I am a Physiology major, and every psio class that I have had has been team taught. I have not had one professor for more that two weeks at a time. I am a non trad with a full time job and a family, so I do not stick around campus after class. I have good letters from science professors from some of the prereqs to get into my major. I am emailing them to find out if they make exceptions. Otherwise, they are going to get one of those dreaded "He got an A in my class, but I have no idea who he is," letters.

    Called NYMC today, they won't budge on the letter of rec requirement. I wish they would be more flexible, but they say that it's their policy and they can't change it or make exceptions.
