Background: CS Undergrad applying to CS PhD Programs, USA.

(Assuming) I have a paper A in review at a Journal B, and I get the acceptance for the same 2 months post the deadline of applying.

Question:

  1. Should I send the places I applied an e-mail saying that the paper which was in review (and mentioned in my SOP/LOR/CV) got accepted?
  2. Does it have any effect on their decision?

    If it is April and you are not on a waitlist, at an American university it is probably too late. Apr 15, 2021 at 2:01
  • @Aymuos Are you waiting for a decision now? Or is this for next cycle? Apr 15, 2021 at 2:48
  • This is for the next cycle!

No. Your CV/application is a snapshot in time, institutes likely won't update your CV/application, and they don't need such an additional burden. (Especially after two months, institutes are likely nearing or have made decisions.)

Does it have any effect on their decision?

It would improve your CV/application, equally it may annoy the institutes: It may have a positive or negative impact.
