Here's my situation: I withdrew from a Caribbean medical school and I will be taking the MCAT in April to get into a U.S. school. I have been out of school for about ten years. Therefore, it will be very difficult for me to get academic letters of recommendation. Does anyone know what types of letters are accepted in lure of academic letters of recommendation? Also, I live in NYC and I am having a difficult time finding a physician to shadow. If anyone has any leads, please advise. Thanks so much.
