Should I update my application to reflect a new position?

Postby Rifka » Wed Feb 10, 2010 2:24 pm

I was just named as co-chair of a 20s/30s group at my synagogue. The position also gives me a seat on the synagogue board. I have been involved in the synagogue since graduating from undergraduate 2.5 years ago, and had listed my involvement as a committee chair on my resume. Is it worth it to communicate my new position to specific admissions offices? I applied to schools in the T14 as well as some safety schools in mid-December. So far I have been admitted to my 3 safety schools, but have not heard a response from the other 10 schools I applied to.

Last Friday I interviewed with an alum from Georgetown, and I mentioned my new volunteer position at the synagogue. She seemed very excited about the position, and made a point to write it down on her interview write-up form. I wasn't sure if that meant that other admissions individuals might find the development interesting as well.

If I should let offices know about this development, what is the best way to relate the information?

Many thanks.

I'm certainly no expert on this but my gut feeling is, forget about it. It's not that significant, it's not particularly relevant to law school, and the application you submitted is an accurate snapshot in time of you at that moment. It would be ridiculous to constantly update one's application with things that, my sincere congratulations notwithstanding, are really relatively minor.

Don't bother them with this. My two cents.
