Yeah, I would. This compromises the integrity of the application and it's unfair to those of us who actually made the deadline for other people to still have access to it.

Kudos for catching it haha. Don't wanna know how you did it though :P

I know what your talking about, now i'm to scared to make any changes for that exact reason to try it out, but:

I have a strong feeling that when you submit your application all the information you filled out is then copied to another database where they then mark it. It would make more sense because that way you wouldn't be able to see your scores.

Just my thinking... its no big deal.

No, you absolutely should contact them and let them know. Like it was already mentioned, it compromises the integrity of the system and it's not fair to the other students who actually did their work on time. Let them know - be honest and forthcoming about it - and they'll thank you.

Right, I know, but it's still the possibility for other people. Let them know.
