Obtaining Last Year's Applications

Postby private_ryan » Sat Aug 21, 2010 8:27 pm

Hello,

I'm a new poster but frequent lurker here on TLS and was wondering whether you guys have versions of last year's applications to HYS plus columbia that can be accessed online. I'm planning on submitting by the middle of september and would like to know what to expect before they become live. I've called the schools but they've told me that last year's applications aren't available anymore. At the very least, is there a way to get the specific instructions each school has for recommendations? My recommenders are willing to write targeted letters but need to know what each school wants! Thanks!

Columbia's is already available. That should give you a good idea of what you can expect, i'm pretty sure all the schools have similar applications.

As far as targeted letters, well, you have your recommender(s) write them specifically for a school, upload it to LSAC, and have LSAC send that targeted letter to your school. You really have no reason to need to see the application to do this.
