I imagine that this topic’s been discussed in depth before, but my search only netted a few brief comments.
Coming up on the end of my mid-application semester, I’ve got a few grades I’d like to share with schools. I believe that these are not done automatically in any way, so I’d have to let each school know about them.
This got me thinking about “update” letters. It turns out I have more questions about them than I first thought. Thanks for any feedback .
- It is correct that I need to send schools my updated grades, yes?
- I can just inform them - I don't need to send a transcript?
- Does it matter if I use email or snail mail?
- What schools should I update? Just those I haven't yet heard from? Would it make sense to send a "thank you and update" to a school I already interviewed at? I imagine it wouldn't be necessary to update schools with which I have an upcoming interview.
