Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
Would a letter of recommendation from a medical school professor whose lab I researched in count as one of my science recommendations? Or are those science recommendations only from those professors that are in undergrad? Anybody know?
I had a problem with this. My non-science coursework letter also came from a professor that I did my honors thesis with. I think schools were confused and thought it was a pure EC letter, and I had to explain it once (oddly enough, UCSD emailed me asking about it... no other schools did...) .
I think other schools might have marked me down for this (?), I mean the ones that explicitly state that the letter should discuss coursework and not just personal qualities.
I had been out for 5+ and asked this question at several of the schools I thought I might apply to well before the process. They all said pretty much the same thing. They want the letters as they ask for them and expected me to do everything I could to get them. However, they also made it clear that my app could still get considered if I couldnt get the 2-science, 1-non, but it might be a bit of a negative.
In any case, if youve been out for that long they will likely want to see recent coursework anyway. I just got recs from the profs in these classes.
