i would just let it go unless that optional essay is really really good. like the best out of 100 optionals that they read.
Submit the optional essay, bartleby.

Yeah, I would submit it. In the Illinois thread with Dean Pless, someone asked if they should submit the optional essay despite not doing so with the original submission of their application. Dean Pless responded basically by saying they want to see everything that you think would help them in their decisions....and an optional essay is yet another opportunity to show off your writing skills/thought process.

I've heard of a lot of people forgetting to attach something on LSAC and then realizing it later and sending it in as an update. Just send in an optional essay. They'll take it, no questions asked.
