A world renowned MD (preferably nobel laureate) saying you are in the top 5% of medical students they have known and they are confident that the obstacles of medical school and beyond are well within your stride.

Um...I don't know. Your volunteer coordinator? Your boss?

What school wants a character reference? Isn't that part of the whole LOR situation anyway?? :confused:

If someone can't attest to your character, then they're probably not a good person to ask for a letter.

Jefferson has this program for people wanting to go into rural family practice in PA. i thought, great, that's my goal exactly. then I see the application requirements: three LOR from community leaders in my home county. WTF? OK, first of all, haven't lived there ina few years. Second of all, I wasn't connected with ANY "community leaders". Who is? I've got three prof LORs since i went to school there. bah. oh well...
