If I recall correctly, the DO letter requirement is a separate thing. Professional letter means like a evaluation from an employer.

At least that's what I took it to mean.

I'm in my 2nd year at UNECOM, and I don't remember there being a D.O. letter requirement - I definitely didn't have one and got in, so that must be new. As far as the "professional" requirement, I called them when I applied and asked about that, and they said it basically means "not a professor". It can be someone who you do research for, a volunteer supervisor, your employer, a doc you shadowed, etc. I sent a letter from the social worker I worked with from Big Brothers Big Sisters.
