Hi,

I recently applied during round 2 and have just realized that some of the authors under the 'properties' on the word docs that I submitted for my essays have a different name (one because my father reviewed my edits and another because I used a word template someone else sent me).

Also, I'm now wondering if my own name was on the 'author' for either one of my recommender's word files, since I sent them the word template that had our company letterhead.

I'm not sure if the admissions committee would go to this level of detail to validate. Surely there are others out there who have leveraged a template for a recommendation letter, essay, or resume. Should I address this with the admissions committee?

Thanks!!

Personally, I would NOT bring it to the attention of the Adcom. Hopefully no one will notice. My concern is that any "explaining" you do could come out poorly (for instance, even if your father reviewed your essays, you should still be the original "author" of the document - it just doesn't make sense that someone else would be the author). I'm not as worried about the recommendations, but, you really shouldn't be providing a "template" for that either (I'm curious what was on the "template" - a blank page?).

Anyway, I doubt that anyone would notice the "author" of a document. It usually only comes up when in edit or track changes mode. So, I think you are getting worried over nothing. However, it may be something to keep in mind if you have future applications. Make sure that you are the author and don't provide templates to recommenders!!

Good luck!

Oh, also, I completely agree that resume templates are often passed along and "leveraged"/shared. Just not sure I feel the same way about essay "templates" or recommendation letters!
