I know that BU doesn't require a grad deans cert... but they're right, columbia and harvard both do.  Sorry! :(

What if you dropped out of grad school?  Do you still need to send one in?

I was only kidding.  Harvard REJECTED me too!!!!!!!!!!!1


just got a letter from harvard that i didnt send my dean's cert from stanford for my MA. did anyone think we needed grad school dean's certs? i feel like no other LS wants that (as evidenced by the fact that i'm "complete" at e.g. cornell). plus it's called a COLLEGE DEAN'S CERTIFICATE so why would they need it for grad school? well, if i steered anyone wrong with my assumption, i apologize.

fwiw, now we know harvard has a checklist and will let you know exactly what's missing if something is. the form they sent me has 5 possible problems with your app and they checked one off and filled it in.

blah...

no... schools will include it in their apps if you need to have one.  they are just recommendations from the dean that basically ask how good of a student you are (according to your gpa, rank, etc.)

lexy, just got the same thing from Harvard.  ARGH!  Question for people who know: so Columbia requires this too from grad schools in ADDITION to undergrad, but how about any of these nine:

BU
BC
Notre Dame
Hastings
NYU
UVA
U Michigan
U Chicago
Georgetown

I think only one of these (in addition to Columbia and Harvard) required Dean certs - maybe BU?  Argh.
