Put wrong year for one of my parents' college graduation

Postby redbullvodka » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:16 pm

Put the year of high school graduation rather than college. This was for Columbia's family information section. Is this worth dealing with? FWIW, put 1978 instead of 1982. How would I even go about dealing with this?

Did they graduate from Columbia?

Either way, it doesn't really matter since it isn't Columbia Law. Don't even worry about it.

Do you mean the section that asks for general information about your family or are you informing them of a parent who graduated from Columbia? If the former, don't worry about it. If the latter, it may cause a snag if they try to look them up, but it's still not like it would be construed as you misleading the school for your benefit. So, basically, don't worry about it.

That whole section is just some Ivy League bullshit - somehow I don't think they checked with my dad's university in Mumbai regarding graduation dates.

They care about a total of six digits, and I bet you can guess what they are.
