    UNIBE's odd requirements

    Hi,

    Let me start off by saying I know Americans who graduated from UNIBE. One is doing extremely well as a successful anesthesiologist in NY. I know that this school produces great students and haven't heard any complaints. I noticed some weird things about the documents though. And I talked to the International Admission Department to get clarification on the following topics:

    -What happens to my birth certificate after they receive it? Will it be sent back?
    -There was no mention of how my LORs must be sent or any such criteria about how old they are. I graduated in 2009. So all of my recommendation letters from undergraduate courses will be from that year or earlier.

    So apparently;

    All ORIGINAL documents-- like the birth certificate (which must first be legalized) will not be returned to the student as they become university property. That sounds incredibly sketchy. I've never heard that being done in an American entity, let alone a university.

    3 Letters of Recommendation are required to be printed on official letterhead and are valid for SIX MONTHS from the date of issue. This is an incredibly small window for people who have not just graduated. This wouldn't be an issue if I were still in school though. On top of all that, shouldn't it be sufficient that my letters are all coming together in a packet approved by my health professions office? Also, no other admissions office has such tight regulations for LoRs.(Even AMCAS!) This is a bit ridiculous.

    The letters of recommendation would be somewhat understandable but the birth certificate requirement is absolutely ludicrous. After the FBI background check, legalized documents, and all the other ** items you have to include for ADMISSION(not post acceptance), it's really questionable.

    I was going to apply for the Sept. Semester of this year (2014); however, I had some documents that were not ready. By the time when I received the call that my application was not complete I was outside the US. I spoke to Lourdes and honestly I have to say I did not have any issues at all. I went on to move my application back to the January term and as in right now I am currently preparing to travel. I could not have done all this without the help of Lourdes and her associates (*****, Mirsa etc...) They all were so helpful that I could not be more thankful. Finally, you gotta keep in mind that they interact and advise many students around the US and other parts, therefore, if you are not persistent. I was very persistent with my documents and my application process was incredibly smooth.
