Question about dean's letter

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Apr 28, 2013 6:48 am

When do I need to have my current school send this letter? I couldn't find a place on LSAC to upload one, so I assume you need a separate one sent to every school? Is it required before they make an admission decision, or do you only send it once accepted?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure its required as part of your application, so they need it before they make a decision.

You need to go to the registrar and have them either give you a sealed deans certificate (or some schools call it a Letter of Good Standing) and send it to each school, or have the registrar send it themselves. Also, some schools have their own form for the deans certificate that you can print from within the application on LSAC. Schools that don't provide a form will be ok with whatever standard format your current school has

A Dean's Cert has to be sent to each school separately? You can't just have one sent to LSAC?

You'll have to check each school's requirements, but most require your school to send it directly to them.

Thanks, I'll make sure to build a couple extra days into my apps for that.

My school had the registrar handle these. I sent her a list of all of the schools that I needed to have a letter sent to (along with addresses). She got them out within a day. She was the coolest, though, so it probably takes longer at other schools.
