Writing a Why X essay after a WL any effective?

Postby SandyC877 » Fri Apr 30, 2010 3:03 pm

Would a "Why X Essay" followed after the 1st LOCI be wise? I am planning on writing a 1-page why I should be admitted and try to bring in some new information. If anyone cared to comment, would this be a good idea to include?

1) Got a full ride at a slightly lower ranked school
2) Pending private scholarship award (this might be sketchy since I wasn't actually awarded yet)
3) Volunteer gig for providing free teaching services to underprivileged kids.

If the award is prestigious and you end up receiving it, it sounds like something that's worth including in a loci. If you're just under consideration, I wouldn't mention it. The other points don't really matter.
