For anyone that has applied or been accepted to the University of Wisconsin, is it true that they require four letters of recommendation, three of which being from professors? I was planning on applying here, but this may actually prevent me from doing so as every other school I'm applying to only requires two, and I don't know three professors well enough to get recommendations from (I go to a school with huge class sizes). Can anyone verify this?

You may want to call the school instead of getting other's opinions, can't go wrong with getting the information straight from the source!

They do require 4 letters of recommendation. I had 3 letters from professors and one letter from my boss.For the 3rd prof, I would ask someone that you've had for class at least twice, if that is possible. Good luck w/ the application process!

I had to get four letters. It was a pain in the butt on top of asking them to fill out PharmCAS.

Thanks for the responses guys! Maybe I'll just save myself the trouble since I'm out of state and they accept a really low number of out of state applicants.
