    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.

    I would say Yes start as soon as possible. You can never have extra recommendation letters. If you start now you can always pick and choose which ones you want to send. However try to maintain contact with the professors that would write a good recommendation letter.
    Usually these letters are dated and you do not want to send one in with your application thats a few years old.

    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.

    What ended up happening with me is when I left Uni i went straight to work and lost contact with most of my professors.

    The research and clinical elective is a great idea!
