Quick question: Will submitting an additional rec to columbia count against you? I know that on the website, it says that "The Committee discourages the submission of additional recommendations, as admissions decisions will be based primarily on the required recommendations from your high school teachers and secondary school/guidance counselor. In general, we recommend the submission of a supplementary recommendation only if the writer has worked with you in a research or college course capacity."
I have a community service adviser who can provide insight into my work in a way that none of my teachers can. However, the rec wouldn't fall under the category of "research or college course capacity." Should I submit it?
