Hi,

What's the protocol for sending a LOCI before you get a decision? I have one school I applied to 2 months ago and 2 I applied to 3 months ago and haven't heard a word, not even a "held."

I have numerous scholarship deadlines approaching, the first coming up April 7 (I guess I could send the money and then forget about it later if I need to, but still...)

I am VERY interested in all of these 3 schools and it would definitely change my plans.

Should I patiently await a decision or email and tell them of my upcoming deadlines, how interested I still am, etc?

just got waitlisted today from my #1 and i'm wondering if i should explain a low gpa if i didn't mention it in my application. i'm 5 years out of school so i was hoping my work experience would outweigh a sub 25% gpa and didn't want to address it since my lsat was solid. should i even bring it up or should i just focus on "positives" like my desire for location/programs/etc?

Hello! I'm hoping for some advice - I have yet to hear from my #1, and have scheduled a trip up to visit the school, and meet with an admissions member to ask questions and talk more about why I really want to go to the school. Do you think it would be overkill to also send a LOCI to the school conveying my interest? I don't want to burden them with 'junk'. That being said, I know the Admissions Dean has said in blogs/comments in the past years that they don't view LOCI as 'junk'. Thoughts?

I have also yet to hear from a school. Wondering when's a good time to send a LOCI (for a transfer app)...

I am finishing up writing my LOCI for #1 school, is there anyone who would be willing to read it and perhaps give me some pointers? I have two versions of it and I get the feeling that it could be improved and perhaps make it less repetitive. thanks

All just FYI I talked to Northwestern and they want LOCIs via email not snail mail. They told me they don't even read anything sent snail mail.
