Hey all,

Just looking for opinions/advice on sending in updates. When is the best time to send them in overall? I plan on sending in post-II updates but is it appropriate to send in pre-II updates as well? Also, when do you usually begin to think about sending in an update (ie - which month?)?

The timing isn't really the question, it's what new information you're offering that is.

If you aced a tough semester, or were recently published, that's worth updating. But if you update with more ordinary and less impressive it certainly won't help your app.
