I assume you meant 2008 cycle?

Is that how cycles are counted, by the year of matriculation? I wasn't so sure.

Seems like a good time for a bump...

To be clear, an example of a college would be a certification from the "College of Arts and Sciences," right?  Not from the Dean of the Poli Sci department or anything?

What if my registar signed all my DCs??
Am I screwed?? do I need to do this again?
I should've been more careful about this but he said he'll
do them for me. (I've known him for a while)
plz law schools, accept my registar's signature!!

So Harvard's Application Checklist doesn't say anything about a Dean's Certificate. This original thread is old, so do they not require one anymore?

Yes, I'm aware that's it's a major reach for me, but I'm still applying.

I called.  They said it's post-admission, pre-matriculation.

and do you need it from EVERY school you attended, or just the one you graduate from?
Do you really believe in free speech, or just in speech you agree with?

So for some reason I was under the impression FIU required a Dean's certificate... but now I don't see one.  Am I going crazy?

i looked yesterday and didn't see it required either...

I'm so pissed about this.

Apparently I had overlooked this on the application (Brooklyn), so I sat incomplete for quite a while before I even knew I was incomplete until I got a letter in the mail.

Then I had to wait another week because my undergrad was on Spring Break.

I wonder how this will affect my chances?

What if I am overseas, and can't get in touch with my UG except by e-mail? How do I get these out? Could I have a friend do it over the phone with all my information?
