I used my match specialist from Big Brothers Big Sisters...I suggest anyone that can attest to your empathy and personal character, etc etc aside from school

I worked in my college's writing center for three years helping other students with their papers and got my letter from the English professor who headed things up. I also took one of her classes.

I didn't need a nonscience letter, however I had a letter from a math professor, and advisor, and my communications professor.

Edit: I don't know if math, despite being BCMP, would qualify as a science letter.

I actually had a much harder time getting a science LOR than non-science ones. My humanities/social science classes were small and discussion-based, so it was easy to get to know the professors and make an impression as long as you had intelligent things to contribute every so often. The science classes, on the other hand, were always just "sit and listen to lecture," and I'm not really the kind of person to frequent office hours-- especially if I don't have any questions to ask.

I had a religious studies minor, so I asked a professor who I had taken about half my minor classes with.

My Asian Religions and First Year Seminar teacher. Not only did he know me really well, but seeing as I spoke openly about my Christianity in my PS, it was a bonus that I could get a teacher who could speak to my tolerance of others' religions.
