Quick dumb question re updating applications on OSCAR

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 27, 2015 9:01 am

Hey all,

To make a long story short:

1) submitted a whole host of applications
2) found some small-ish errors in my writing sample that I fixed

Should I go back through all of my applications and throw in the new writing sample? Is there any sort of e-mail alert to chambers or something like that generated every time someone updates an application/does it say what was changed?

Would rather not broadcast "hey, my writing sample had errors in it!"

Thanks.

A definitive answer to this would be great. For my own part, I will say that the judges I asked said they do NOT receive email updates. I went ahead and fixed errors as I found them; still got interviews. Make of that what you will.

Yes, I would go in and change the writing sample. No, chambers does not receive an email when an application is updated (thankfully, or else we would be bombarded all day). No, we will not know what you changed (unless we pulled your app, read it, and noticed the changes). The only thing that changes is a little icon on your application heading that would read "U" for updated. If you never update the app, it will have an "F" for finalized. I think we assume that most "U" apps indicate new grades or resumes.

Yeah I think it also goes "U" when career services uploads LORs.

Thanks for the answer.
