Paper Submission - Should I Contact Admissions Depts?


Recommended Posts

We've just submitted a paper that we've been working on for the last few months to a conference (http://www.icwsm.org/2013/index.php) - and should hear back within a month whether it has been accepted or not.


Since that's going to be after most departments have made their MS decisions, is it worth contacting them now and asking if they can update my application?


(I won't be able to give them a publicly available link to the PDF, but should be able to provide a private link to it.)

Congratulations on the paper. I published this January and have the same sort of dilemma.


I've decided to send along an updated CV to programs from which I'm still waiting for a response. I figure it can't hurt. Worst case scenario is the program thinks I'm being pushy (which I think would be highly unlikely, given that I have not contacted them as of yet regarding my application status). Best case scenario is that the programs recognize my most recent accomplishments and my continued, positive interest in the school, moving me up the list for funding/acceptance.


If anyone has a differing opinion, I would like to hear it.
