I got the same three awards last year too, so they're already on my resume. I'd just be saying "hey, I got these again." Worth sending an update to my file?
In related news, I'm rich now.
YOU ARE SO AWESOME!
Well, I'd say I'm only pretty awesome.
It was kind of a stupid post to make, and I normally don't like to brag, but it's a serious question. It's not like I won a Rhodes Scholarship or anything, but it is something, and I dunno if I should update my application with it or not.
I definitely would update your application. Sweeping all of the awards twice in a row shows tremendous consistency. Usually, departments like to divide the spoils among their students, so it is an especially impressive achievement. Congratulations on being the Roger Federer of your department!
