Basically I was doing undergrad research at my university, and the group I'm with has generously included me as a coauthor in a (very) recent publication.
Would it seem very contrived if I emailed admissions to tell them I've got a publication now (it's already mid Feb)?
I did mention in my SOP that I was doing said research, but did not mention about any potential publication since it was still ongoing then.
Figured there's no loss if they ignored it, but potentially a gain if otherwise. Any advices?
