well, my undergrad's prelaw office writes its own letter/certification and form to the schools i request...the prelaw people said i can send it to whoever i want and that schools are used to receiving them, even if not requested...i'm wondering if there were any downsides to that...if not, why not right?

I don't think it will make any difference if you send a Dean's Certificate to any of the law schools that don't require it.

If you e-mail Columbia or Stanford about whether they got your Dean's Cert Form(s), will they even respond? How about a phone call? I haven't submitted my application yet, but I requested Dean's Certs several weeks ago.

I've emailed both schools with questions, and they've been very responsive.  I also asked, and you can submit the Dean's Cert before your app gets there.

Thanks. I will get right on this. I e-mailed Virginia 2-3 days ago and haven't heard anything back from them, so I was worried this would be the case at other schools as well.

It's strange--on LSAC, Washington & lee doesn't seem to require one, but on their website application area they say they do. Anyone know for sure?

Forgive me if this has already been covered but I didn't see it in the list--Washington and Lee requires a Dean's form:

Just to help people out--

BU and UCONN say that it's no problem if the certification arrives before the application.

How long, on average, does it take for a DC to arrive at a given school.  I sent mine out on my UG school over twoo weeks ago and I don't believe any of the schools got them yet.

I got accepted to Richmond last week, and my DC forms are still sitting blank on my desk.

I guess I should submit those or something. :D
