Should I have sent an update?

<p>Do a lot of people send application updates to Stanford? Should I have done this? I was an RD applicant, not SCEA.</p>

<p>the answer is: did you actually have anything to update them about?</p>

<p>i sent an update, but that is because since my application was submitted, I received my IB diploma results (and therefore final rank among graduating year 12 students in my state - i guess this helps because i don't have a GPA or anything), decided to start a chinese language class through the university in my town (just so i wouldn't forget what i had learned), and started working almost 35 hours a week.</p>

<p>if you just continued doing what was outlined on your application and didn't really have anything else to add, then updating would have been a waste of everyone's time.</p>

<p>I think it's too no point crying over something you can't change! Stay hopeful and good luck! less than one week!</p>
