certification letter? I keep running into people mentioning these in various threads. I sent nothing to anyone. I believe BU only requires a certification if attending, but I have no clue what you're referring to.


Certification from the Dean is only required for two schools to APPLY: Yale, Stanford.

This year BYU started requiring all applicants to do a dean's cert as well. I applied to USC and didn't do a certification. Hmmm, I'll have to look into that.

I applied to USC and did not do a Dean's Cert also.

I also received a ding from them last week soooo maybe they didn't like it very much.

I think people are missing the unless you're a trouble maker portion of my post. USC and Cornell require them if you had any disciplinary or academic issues in UG.

This poster was talking about the certification when submitting your application from the LSAC site that you can sign and mail in. Most schools also accept your submission via LSAC as an electronic signature, but for a couple schools (such as BC), you could or were required to mail an actual piece of paper with your signature if you were applying with a fee waiver or some other reason. I did not submit a paper certification for BU, but I did for BC. See below:

What blakc is showing was what I was talking about.

If you look at you application on LSAC, there is a link for that type of letter for BU. Every school that has had that, I have been WL'd at. I'm hoping that wasn't the reason.

I didn't do one for BU either. I didn't need to, and most people don't need to. If you read what I wrote, it wasn't necessary for BU unless you needed a fee waiver or (according to the certification) additional paper addendum not included in your electronic application. But, this is the certification the other poster was referring to (not Dean's certification).

ouch

220 people who matriculate, not 220 accepted. They're ranked in the 20s so they have to admit far more than 220, trust me.

At least they send a rejection letter. That seems more courteous than an email.
Although wasn't there people who got rejected earlier by email? Weird.
