Not true that it is ok.

I have read some cases that it is not valid and some cases that it went thru just fine.

I sent her a PM about this as she messaged me about it.

I suggested she get a certified copy just in case it is not accepted. If it were me, I would send the laminated copy and wait for an RFE and if they want a non-laminated copy, well your already prepared for that.

Please think of the plus and minus of each question you ask and prepare that way.

Leave no doubt in your mind and you should be fine...
