Dean's certifications? [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2011, 16:00
Good morning. I was reading through some articles on the application process on BTG. An article by Grockit talks about Dean's certifications.

Do any of your target programs require a “Dean’s Certification”? Some programs require a short-form letter, a recommendation of sorts, from the Office of the Dean at your undergraduate institution. There’s usually someone in the Dean’s office who is responsible for such letters, and many students don’t know their respective deans. (Most) schools are prepared for these requests, but again-more paperwork, phone calls, emails, letters, follow-up, etc.

Some highly competitive programs require a Dean’s Certification form/letter, either during the application process or sometimes after acceptance, which can be tougher to obtain, so work on making communication in-roads as soon as possible to facilitate the process.


I've heard of them being required of certain law schools, but does anyone know what business schools she is referring to?

Secondly, what precisely does a Dean's certification entail? She gives very little info, and a search of the forums didn't pull anything up.
