My fall grades have many of the relevant courses which I'm seeking to study for my Ph.D, so I thought it might be nice if they had some semblance of my performance in those areas by seeing my fall grades. I guess I won't send them the grades then.
Don't get me wrong. I totally am with you on your desire to provide the department with important information. The concern I have is that when the department is so emphatic on not having updated information, then the department might be pi***ed off by the applicant and take the attitude that the applicant is not capable of following instructions. That is the risk I wouldn't want to take if I were you. Good luck.
