Do you need to notify UC's of National Merit Finalist status?

<p>I remember them saying do not send in any additional materials, but I think that being confirmed as a Finalist is important- I just would not know who to tell or how to tell them. Any advice?</p>

<p>Like I said in your UCLA thread, don't worry about it. UC's won't give you any money for it anyway</p>

<p>If you think it will help in admissions, save it for later. If you get rejected, you can use that in your basis for appeal (if you are so inclined). But don't bother updating them about it.</p>
