Student visa risk of being cancelled?

So a few months ago I applied for a student visa online and got the decision very quickly (within half an hour!). Today I took a look at my application and I noticed it's asked me if during the last 5 years I have lived outside the United States for more than 3 consecutive months (I'm a US national). I put "no" for my answer but actually I have. So my question is: at this point, since my visa has already been granted, is it worth sending in form 1023 to correct this error? If I don't, is it possible that when I arrive in Australia, they would check my passport and notice that I actually have been out of the US for a bit of time? And then would they cancel my visa because I "lied" on my application? Or am I just being paranoid?

Would appreciate any suggestions!

Your visa may have something like this -

Quote:
If incorrect information or documents have been provided with the application and that information has not been corrected, it may lead to cancellation of the visas at a later stage.

You may wish to seek assistance to have the oversight corrected ASAP.

I imagine you can still send in a Form 1023 - but if I were you, I'd ask Mark in the thread at the top of the forum to be more certain of what you should do.
