    I am in desperate need of a science letter of recommendation. I have one, but as you are probably aware, most schools require two. So here is my question:

    Can someone who I've worked with at the lab count as a science prof LOR if I've also taken an independent study course for a grade with him?

    Well, if you took an independent study course with him/her then technically they are one of your professors... so I say yes!

    I had the opposite problem... I had a hard time finding a non-science prof. to write a rec for me... I ended up using my "ethics in computer science" professor... emphasis on the "ethics." :)

In my undergrad years I have taken 5 (coun't 'em, 5) non-science courses. And they were all freshman, and first half of sophomore years. I ended up getting the Colonel in Aerospace Studies (afrotc) to write mine.
