Hi everyone, I have a specific situation that I could not find advice on elsewhere. I am a re-applicant and completed a post-bac certificate in 2021. I received a committee letter for the 2021-2022 cycle but I did not get any interviews. I am reapplying this cycle and missed the deadline to re-request the committee letter. The deadline was in February, but I was still hearing from schools at this point and honestly wasn't thinking about the letter until I was sure I was going to re-apply.

I have already messaged the school to see if they could make an exception but they're pretty strict. Will it look bad if I re-apply without the committee letter? I have a variety of letters (academic, research, clinical, etc.) that I feel like are stronger anyway. Still, I've heard it can look bad to not have a committee letter if you studied at an institution that offers them.

Any advice is appreciated!
