Admissions Question: October 21st
Q: How does Lewis & Clark feel about the new evaluation service offered through the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) for recommenders in lieu of sending letters from the same recommenders?
A: The evaluation service is still very new to our admissions process. At this time, Lewis & Clark still requires letters of recommendation from each applicant (we require 2 letters, but will accept up to 3 letters). If you would like your recommenders to also complete an evaluation through the service provided by CAS, the Admissions Committee will also review those evaluations as submitted.
The evaluation is also a great tool for your recommenders to use in crafting the letter on your behalf, since it touches on evaluation of many of the most important evaluative factors for an applicant. So, it might serve well as guidance for your letter writers!
