You all made me freak out because I hadn't submitted a cert from the community college I took some general classes from during a summer break. Here's what Harvard's website says:The Harvard Law School College Certification is required from each academic institution that has granted or is expected to grant you a degree, and from any institution at which you are currently enrolled in a degree program. You may photocopy the blank form if you need more than one. The form is usually completed on the basis of the school’s records. The College Certification is not a letter of recommendation, so it is not necessary for the person completing the form to know you. The College Certification requests confirmation of the conferral (or expected conferral) of your degree, rank-in-class (if available), and information about possible academic or behavioral disciplinary actions. School officials who have access to academic and disciplinary records may complete certifications. Each institution is different, but usually a Dean of Students or Pre-Law Adviser Office completes this form.A school official may mail a completed College Certification directly to the J.D. Admissions Office or may return a College Certification to you in a sealed, signed envelope to be mailed, unopened, with your paper application form (if you are using the paper application form).Receipt of College CertificationsIf your College Certification is sent directly to our office and you would like to be notified of our receipt of it, make arrangements with the school official completing your College Certification to enclose a postcard, addressed and with the proper postage attached, with the form. We will be happy to mail any cards we receive at the time the College Certification is opened.(from http://www.law.harvard.edu/admissions/jd/ccs.php)
Don't know if you still care, but this bit of helpful information should suffice (from that link):HLS home > admissions > jdGo backwards through those steps to figure out how they got there.
what are your thoughts about sending dean's certificates even if a school does not require them? it can only help right?
