Your letter is written by your advisor, either from the class center of Dean Rigney herself in the pre-prof office. As for "is your advisor" cool, I think that highly depends on who your advisor is. Some are great, some are more postive about your app and some are less so. In general, I had a great experience with my dean. She was very helpful throughout the process and I have no complaints. If you want more specifics, PM me.

There are a few advisors. Dean Rigney is the head of the pre-prof office and is the "chief dean" I would say. Many students, though, have deans from the junior and senior classs centers as their main advisor.
