Relax. While Adcoms like Committee LORs because they save a lot of work in reading the dam things, they are NOT required. Now, schools prefer them, especially when candidates are applying from feeder UG schools, but then you simply have to explain why you don't have a committee LOR.I’m junior and planning on applying next cycle. My stats are 3.6 cgpa, 3.5 sgpa, 524 mcat. But freshmen year I ended with a 2.0 gpa and my school requires a 3.3 to open a file with them before my 3rd semester at the school is over. Now, I talked to them and asked to open a file. They rejected me and said I am too late. Now I cannot get a committee letter but i don’t know how bad it will hurt me.
Frankly, your school's policy is asinine and extremely punitive.
