A quick definition of constructive notice:

Constructive notice is a legal idea that says someone has been told about something, even if they haven't actually been told. This happens when certain rules have been followed, and the law assumes that the person knows about it. For example, if there is a paper that has been registered, the law assumes that the person knows about it, even if they haven't seen it. This is different from actual notice, which is when someone has been directly told about something.

A more thorough explanation:

Constructive notice is a legal concept that assumes someone has received notice, even if they haven't actually received it. This happens when certain procedures have been followed, and the law considers the person to have received notice. This is different from actual notice, which is when someone has received notice in reality.

  • If a property is sold and the deed is registered with the government, anyone who wants to buy the property in the future is assumed to have constructive notice of the sale. This means they are legally considered to have known about the sale, even if they didn't actually know.
  • If there is a pending lawsuit that could affect someone's interest, they are assumed to have constructive notice of the lawsuit. This means they are legally considered to have known about the lawsuit, even if they didn't actually know.

These examples illustrate how constructive notice works. Even if someone didn't actually know about the sale or the lawsuit, they are still considered to have known because of the legal procedures that were followed.

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

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
