A quick definition of reason to know:

Term: Reason to Know

Definition: Reason to know means having enough information that a person with average intelligence or even a person with superior intelligence can assume that a fact exists or has a substantial chance of existing if they exercise reasonable care.

Simply put, if someone has enough information to reasonably believe that something is true, then they have a reason to know it.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Reason to know refers to information that would lead a person of average or superior intelligence to believe that a particular fact exists or has a high probability of existing. This information is such that if the person exercises reasonable care, they can assume the fact exists.

  • If a person sees a wet floor sign in front of a store, they have a reason to know that the floor may be slippery and they should be careful while walking.
  • If a person hears a weather forecast predicting heavy rain, they have a reason to know that there may be flooding in low-lying areas.
  • If a person receives an email from their bank asking them to update their account information, they have a reason to know that their account may be at risk of fraud and they should take appropriate measures to protect it.

These examples illustrate how reason to know is based on information that is available to a person and that they can use to make informed decisions. In each case, the person has access to information that suggests a particular fact or situation exists, and they can take steps to protect themselves or avoid potential harm.

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
