Massive confusion regarding on sending the CommonApp School Forms

edited March 2012 in Common Application
1) So I applied to three schools on the Common App and each school respectively asks for the School Form where it needs to be signed by the Dean and the Instructor Evaluation Form.

2) Yesterday, I printed out the School Form and gave it to the Dean for it to be signed and printed out the Instructor Evaluation Form and gave it to one of my Professors from last semester for it to be signed.

So I do prepare 6 of those large yellow envelopes and give 3 to the Dean and 3 to the Professor and have them send it? How exactly is it supposed to be sent? I might be thinking too much, which is causing confusion.

    I confess I haven't sent any Common App forms hard copy, but based on what classmates have done and my own experience sending off hard copy scholarship applications:

    Ask for three copies of each form and ask that they are sealed in individual envelopes by the dean/professor (my teachers would typically use a standard mailing envelope with our school's crest and then sign the flap as a kind of seal) and then pair them up by college into a manilla envelope. By that I mean, one School Form (Dean) and one Instructor Evaluation Form (Professor) goes in each envelope. Seal these envelopes. Send one to each of the colleges.

    Sorry if that didn't make a lot of sense... I'm not sure I'm explaining myself clearly here... :/

    ^So I'm supposed to mail the envelopes myself, and not the Dean/Professor? Because I was told that I have no authority to send those forms myself.

    Well, I suppose they could send them - just give them a copy of the address so they know where to send them.

    Good luck!
