Re: Sending edited version of old resume - bad idea?

Probably won't help or hurt you. Probably won't slow down your app much either.

If it gives you peace of mind, go ahead and send it in, but realize that it likely won't make one lick of difference except on the offchance you are aiming for HYS.

Well YS and more holistic overall.

If you are aiming that high I say send it in. I expect that schools get updated resumes/transcripts all the time and that the clerks who work in the admissions office just go into the file and replace the old one with the new one. I don't think they will even see the old one if they haven't looked at your file yet. It's not like a PS/DS/etc that people rarely send in an updated copy, it is an updated resume which they likely get a decent amount of considering people get new jobs and such.

I say send it if you are aiming for HYS.

I would say less so, but if you are going to send it I am inclined to say send it to them all.

However, if you have numbers good for CCN and below I would consider against it because it may slightly delay your application which may hurt scholarship money.

The thing is, this is so at the margins that I don't think it is worth it for CCN and below where softs aren't much of a factor. If you have good URM numbers for the schools I would say no, if you have borderline URM numbers for the schools I say send it just in case.
