    So it is really important to make sure you have a relationship with a professor (pre-med classes) who can attest to your knowledge and experience in science.

    So, I should start collecting recommendation letters from now? I’m a premed in my freshman year (second semester).
    I think I could get one from my Pre-Med advisor as I had a Biology class with him and got an A for the course.

    What if you have been out of school for some time and then decide to go to medical school? Any alternatives to this?

    Well, if you’ve been working some place, you could get an experience letter or you could ask your previous school professors to write your some LoRs. I think they
    would do that. If that doesn’t work out, you could do a research or clinical elective and get recommendation letters that way.

    Hope this helps.
