If I already sent a waitlist update email to a school in early Jan but got a new MBA internship that I am planning to start in March, should I send another update to the school via email or is that too much traffic? (For reference: R1 applicant waitlisted at HSW, waitlist updates requested via email, waitlist decision will be made by R2 decisions end of March)

I think another email update is appropriate. Don’t over think it.

Hmm does that signal to the school you’ve committed to another school? Or why would you be so sure to quit your job and start an MBA internship?
