if i'm including two affidavits from close friends in my ROC package, should the affidavits be notarized? Or can I just include the signed letters in my package? Please advice.

Notarisation isn't the same as "sworn". They do not need to be notarised.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affidavit

An affidavit ( /ˌæfɨˈdeɪvɨt/ A-fə-DAY-vət) is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorized to do so by law. Such statement is witnessed as to the authenticity of the affiant's signature by a taker of oaths, such as a notary public or commissioner of oaths. The name is Medieval Latin for he has declared upon oath. An affidavit is a type of verified statement or showing, or in other words, it contains a verification, meaning it is under oath or penalty of perjury, and this serves as evidence to its veracity and is required for court proceedings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sworn_declaration

A sworn declaration (also called a sworn statement or a statement under penalty of perjury) is a document that recites facts pertinent to a legal proceeding. It is very similar to an affidavit, but unlike an affidavit, it is not witnessed and sealed by an official such as a notary public. Instead, the person making the declaration signs a separate endorsement paragraph at the end of the document, stating that the declaration is made under penalty of perjury.

we just based it from this...it would still be up to you whether you want it notarized or not. I think you can use either of these two but they have different wordings.

We're still in the process of ROC so i really don't know which one they need. Inky had been approved already, she might be right. Some didn't even submit these letters. Good luck :)

Understandable. They're not a "requirement" though and if you want to get it notarised it's not going to hurt anything. So if it makes you feel better have at it :P
