I have been back and forth on whether to include this. Does it seem fair to put it in an addendum and leave it up to them? Or just not at all? I'm tempted to just leave it up to to them to decide..
Yes please write the "I've never been to a reservation or anything like that, but my grandmother says I'm 1/16th Native American, oh yeah there isn't any record of this. Just thought you should know" addendum.
Yeah no need to be an ass, that is just about exactly what the OP did, and a 160 is low even for ED (no offense! In is in, and you'll love it!)
