I am applying for path in this years match, but I have not done a path elective yet. Therefore I will not have any LORs from any pathologists. How important is it to have a letter from a pathologist? I am a US med student with honors in all basic sciences and 250 on step I. I am hoping to get into a top program?

You should do fine. You have great scores. Just explain why you don't have them yet if anyone cares.

Did you just get out of jail or something??? You're bumping threads over a decade old asking if people went into pathology, most of whom aren't even on these forums anymore... :yeahright:
