A quick definition of best mode:

Best mode: The best way the inventor knows to make their invention. When someone applies for a patent, they have to tell the government the best way they know to make their invention. If they don't, their patent might not be valid. This is also called the best embodiment.

A more thorough explanation:

In the field of patents, the term "best mode" refers to the best way that the inventor knows to work the invention described and claimed in a patent or patent application. It is a requirement that a patent application must disclose the best mode known to the inventor at the time of filing. Failure to disclose the best mode can render a patent invalid.

For example, if an inventor has discovered a new way to make a particular product, they must disclose the best mode of making that product in their patent application. If they fail to do so, their patent may be invalidated.

Another example could be a software patent. If an inventor has developed a new algorithm for a particular function, they must disclose the best mode of implementing that algorithm in their patent application.

The best mode requirement ensures that the public is given the most complete and accurate information about the invention, allowing others to build upon it and further advance the field.

anyone have advice on submitting an additional rec letter after WL even if the admissions officer said it's not necessary? rec letter is from someone affiliated with the school..
I would still do it
18:01
not someone claiming they got accepted from the SMU WL
One of my waitlist allowed me to submit a fifth letter of rec after submitting 4 in my initial applicstion
18:03
I just hope SMU gives me a chance once my test results post :’)
If it’s another prof, I would ask the law school if it’s okay if the new recommender submitted another letter directly to admissions team, if they say yes definitely go for it
18:05
I only have one LOCI for them left and I’m waiting to use it when my last results release, otherwise I would
