Will an updated resume slow down my app?

Postby studyingeveryday » Thu Jan 19, 2017 8:34 pm

1. Will sending an updated resume to schools I am under review at slow down my application process?

2. Should I simply send the resume as an attachment in my email, or should I also write a blurb in the email about how I think my new employment will be useful for my application/in law school? (could be a dumb question, am asking because I don't know what the expected protocol is on this)

Thank you!

I applied to Harvard in October and hadn't received a JS1, so I sent an updated resume last week - sent an attachment of the resume as well as another attachment explaining the update in the resume and a little commentary in the actual email - and received a JS1 this week. Not sure if it actually sped up my app but it didn't slow it down.

wow, that's great, good luck! I'll do something similar then.
