Do you guys think they know what SUNY and CUNY are for my parents degrees? Spelling it out takes up all the characters

Pretty sure they don't give a crap where your parents went but yea SUNY and CUNY is fine. Especially given that CU is in NY. I wouldn't worry tho.

They must ask it for some reason!

Also, did anyone who wrote a why columbia attach it in the supplementary statement section? Not a diversity statement. Also, I think I need to put my LSAT addendum here? But they ask for you to combine them into one document, which is weird.

I haven't applied yet, but I wrote a Why Columbia statement, it never hurts. And if that's the case just title them accordingly and put on different pages?

You know, I heard that if you had a relative who went to an Ivy but never donated it's better off that they don't know about it.

Something about it showing how you might not donate in the future as well.

Just noticed that Columbia needs the rec letters directly from the recommenders...did you guys just ask your people to e-mail Columbia's admissions office directly?

I submitted them through LSAC and my status checker says they are received, naming all of my recommenders. I don't remember seeing a different way to submit them.

Last question (I think); I'm not including a professional letter of rec because I do not want to jeopardize my current employment, and also because I had asked two other colleagues at my first place of employment...they both agreed to do it, but have not responded to my messages the past couple of weeks. Should I mention the second reason? I don't want to come across as a whiner.
