    Do you think it's worthwhile to send updates to schools where I've been accepted? Do you think it'll make any difference in the financial aid package?

    Just wondering. Let me know your thoughts.

    Yeah unless you just won the nobel prize there is no point. Most schools offer little to no academic based scholarships and either you are already an outstanding applicant and are likely to get a scholarship or you aren't getting anything with or without the update.
