Why on earth are you sending schools anything besides your app, resume, PS, any other statements, and your medical records (if you wrote an addendum)?

Do note use footnotes and do not send them your "youth" records.

Is OP Dwight Schrute?

I used a footnote to attribute a quotation that I was discussing to its source. I highly doubt it adversely affected my cycle. But no, I would not cite to my own materials. That's ridiculous.
