Professors do that for letters of recommendations at our school. I'd like that if I was getting receiving an application, but I don't want to give them a reason to just put it aside.
Seems unnecessary. I didn't do it on any of my clerkship applications last year, and I got a couple interviews from paper applications. But I also don't think your application will get put to the side because they think your header is frivolous.
