I plan on applying to medical schools that request a dean's letter. However, I bounced from community college to community college to community college to finally university. Do they require a dean's letter from each of these schools or just from my university? If so it'd be a gigantic pain in the ass since I don't live near any of these junior colleges anymore. Thanks.

1) Every school is different
2) Given that every school is different and you did not provide any school names see #3
3) Contact the school directly to get an answer. Chances are their AdComs know more about what their school wants that people on the internet who have no idea what schools you are talking about

thanks, I had mistakenly thought schools had a universal protocol for this.

One usually only gets a committee letter from the university of graduation (if they offer one).

I thought the committee letter was given by my university's pre-med committee (which we do have) and that it is separate from a dean's letter.
