Postby Romes5524 » Fri Jan 08, 2010 6:17 am

Is it required or is it only upon their request?

Only required if you answered yes to the probation/discipline question.

+1, but I also think that it is required if you are accepted and going to matriculate. I filled out that application a very long time so forgive me if I am wrong about that last part.

Just ran a search on this topic, here is what I found from Cornell's website (in case anyone else is curious):

"Does Cornell Law require a Dean's Certification with the application?

A Dean's Certification is not required as part of your application for admission unless you answered "yes" to question 22 on your application. If you answered "yes" to this question, please submit the Dean's Certification to an official from your degree granting institution that has access to your disciplinary records. The Dean's Certification must be sent directly to Cornell Law School. You can not submit the Dean's Certification through the Law School report service.

Prior to matriculation at Cornell Law School, all admitted students must submit a completed Dean's Certification Form. More information about this form will will be provided upon admission."
