Updating Applications while waiting

Postby castjess » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:35 pm

Hey guys,
I am new to this forum so please bear with me.

Does anyone know about going about updating schools with updated information while waiting for a decision on your application(s)?

For example, I coordinated the first ever kickball tournament in my town that raised over $1800 to get the foster children Christmas gifts.
I got all the law enforcement agencies together along with other teams yesterday and it was a huge success! (This is a nutshell explanation, I did a lot of work for this to happen)

I think it is worth mentioning to the schools that I applied to? How should I do that? In an attachment? Just in an email?
Or is it even worth mentioning?

Any help is appreciated.
Thank you!

Is it something you're adding to your resume?

If yes, send an updated resume. If no (and based on your description, I think this is the correct answer), then don't bother notifying the schools. Either way, it's not going to make much difference.

Agreed that this won’t matter to admissions. Only contact schools with update if you have something substantial or prestigious to add to your resume. For exampl, getting a major award or scholarship. Maybe published work counts to?
