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?
https://www.law.harvard.edu/admissions/jd/apply/checklist.php

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?

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?
