I made a mini page like below. It compiled without any error, however, I am getting following message in log:

Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph at lines 104--109

I am trying to fix above message.

\begin{minipage}[b]{0.4\linewidth}
    \dotfill\\
    Prof. XYZ\\
    Department of XYZ\\
    University of whatever, \\
    City, Country\\

    Date: ............\\
\end{minipage}
49

Remove \\ from the last two lines:

  \begin{minipage}[b]{0.4\linewidth}
    \dotfill\\
    Prof. XYZ\\
    Department of XYZ\\
    University of whatever, \\
    City, Country              %<--- here

    Date: ............         %<----and here
\end{minipage}

Bad boxes should go away. Forcing a line break followed by a blank line{which amounts to a paragraph break) and a line break after the last line are responsible for the bad boxes.

    there are literally hundreds of messages answering this question. one that has been cited before is Implicit newline at the end of each paragraph?. it would be a good thing to have a "stock" question that can be cited as a duplicate, that would explain many situations. – barbara beeton Sep 5 '14 at 13:26
