I know there have been multiple threads on this topic, so forgive me for beating a dead horse. I wanted to ask if this prompt would be appropriate to update the schools that my paper has been accepted for publication. Should I send a separate update letter instead? If so, would mentioning gap year plans or why this school be better alternatives?

Letting them know this with 1-2 sentences would be fine, along with the citation or PMID. I would not use this prompt to explain "why this school" or gap year plans unless there was something truly compelling that you needed to say (e.g strong family ties to the city or state, S.O being anchored there, etc).

Thanks for explaining! These optional essays can be a bit tricky to navigate.
