Fall 2016 grades matter. If it's 2017 and you haven't been accepted yet, you should submit updated grades--your competition will be submitting updated grades, and SLS will assume you've got something to hide if you're hiding something. Arguments can be made for having senior year's grades factor in either more or less, but it's impossible to know what Faye thinks on the subject.
