I am an Undergraduate student applying for MS in Electrical Engineering for Fall 2012 at UMich, USC, CMU, Cornell and Arizona State University. I have finished my online application part couple of days ago. I have also asked ETS to send the universities my GRE and TOEFL Scores. The letters of recommendation have been submitted by the professors.

Now the only remaining part is the supplementary document submission. But I was wondering what exactly is meant by supplementary document. Should I be sending only my undergraduate transcripts to the university or should I include another copy of my SOP, Letters of Recommendation and resume (All which I submitted online) as well?

And also, should I send the abstracts if the projects I have undertaken? The photocopy of the honors/certificates I have received? Photocopy of my previous academic records like high school grade sheet?

I would really appreciate a quick reply since the deadlines are fast approaching.

Thanking you in advance

No one cares what you did in high school. They generally don't care for copies of certificates either. I recommend submitting a resume or CV with your application; this will have info on the projects you worked on.

I applied to nine schools, and everything that was submitted online was available not only to the main graduate admissions office, but also the department as well. In some schools they printed these things and passed them around; in others, it was all available electronically. So don't worry about sending in anything you've already given them. You'll be fine.
