A quick definition of manipulation:

Manipulation: Manipulation is when someone tries to make it look like a lot of people are buying or selling a stock to make the price go up or down. This is against the law and is called market manipulation or stock manipulation. It is not allowed by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Manipulation in securities refers to the illegal practice of artificially raising or lowering the price of a security by creating the illusion of active trading. This practice is prohibited by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

For example, a group of investors may collude to buy and sell a particular stock among themselves, creating the appearance of high trading volume and driving up the price of the stock. Once the price has risen, they may sell their shares to unsuspecting investors at the inflated price, making a profit.

Another example of manipulation is when a trader spreads false rumors about a company to create panic among investors and cause them to sell their shares, driving down the price of the stock. The trader can then buy the shares at the lower price and sell them later at a higher price, making a profit.

These examples illustrate how manipulation can distort the true value of a security and harm investors who are not aware of the manipulation.

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
