    I know of an osteopathic school that states in their catalog that someone can write a letter to the dean recomending a student to their school and it will be given full consideration in the evaluation of the student.My question is, does anyone know if this is ever done? Is this usually done just for the upper crest of society? Is it to forward for an ordinary average student. If not, then who would be appropriate to write the letter? What about former superintendent of schools, doctor friend(also former employer), etc. Any advice please.

    Usually letters to the dean are written by alumni of that school, current or past faculty at the school or clinical preceptors directly conected to the school.

    Otherwise, everyone would just have their rec letters fowarded to the dean, LOL.

    Thanks everyone, So I assume a doctor friend who happens to be on the clinical adjunct faculty(even though they use a tremendous number of clinical adjunct instructors, and may not even remember his name), would be a good rec. to the dean.
