So, I never sent an updated resume to this school because it was a safety and I honestly didn't think I'd be going there. While I got into some of my targets, the safety threw a redic amount of money at me (not a full ride). Now, I am considering the school. My question is while I try to negotiate a higher scholarship for the safety (really want that full ride) , should I send them an updated resume, even though I have been accepted already? The only thing that's new on the resume is my job I have had since Nov. which is a paralegal at a 40 attorney firm. I know paralegals are a dime a dozen, but I was curious if this could even the slightest impact is possibly getting that money bump. Thanks!

How could it hurt when your only choice is not to send it and potentially not get an increased scholarship? I would say it wouldn't hurt to show them that you are still progressing although you have been accepted into law school.

Are you digging for someone to tell you not to send it? Just send it in, the extra job couldn't possibly hurt. You don't have to explain to them that you're sending it in hoping it will bump you to a full ride. Send it in, then send in your scholarship negotiation letter. They'll have your new resume in front of them when they go over your request.
