I have a question about the dean recommendation...How does this work? I don't know if it's different in the US or something, but I'm applying as a transfer from Canada and it's not like we know the dean personally. I don't understand how he/she is going to be able to answer questions about my academics AND my personality, etc. And are they willing to make this recommendation even if they don't know the person? I think I'm just confused. Do you have any info about this recommendation? Any info at all would be helpful. This is the last thing I need to complete before sending in my application, so I'm kind of panicky right now.
