RE: Should I mention the university name in my LOR?
Your recommender will have to upload the LOR separately for each university.
Professors and bosses are usually very busy, and won't find the time to change the university name every time they upload your LOR.
So, it's not advisable to name the institute in your letter.
RE: How can I find out why a university rejected me?
Wait until the term starts...
Universities usually don't share this information because you might help a friend apply for the program in the same term
Then, email them...tell them you wish to improve and apply again
I don't guarantee you'll get a reply, but...no harm in asking, right?
RE: Admit for the wrong course
This happens when the admission committee thinks you might be better at another course...or when the seats are filled up for the course you applied to
I suggest you consider the program you've been accepted in...see if you like it...curriculum, faculty, and opportunity-wise
If not, you can always email them and say you want to be considered for the program you applied to, instead
