Saving LOR for LOCI

Postby megagnarley » Mon Jan 14, 2013 3:24 pm

This has been addressed before by others but without ever reaching consensus.

Story: Under review at most schools with two academic LOR's. Borderline numbers for NYU/UVA/Penn et al.

Just received an additional very strong LOR from my employer.

Submit now to give the best shot of RD admit or save some LOCI ammo understanding I might be WL either way?

That is all.

I would save it. How long have you been under review? You wouldn't want to end up WL anyway, and then not have something strong to send them.

This is just my opinion, but I would send it to NYU and UVA, maybe at the end of the week. By then you will have been under review for about 4 weeks. I think that's a reasonble amount of time to wait to send something with seeming stalkerish. I might hold off on Columbia and Boalt, since it's been less than two weeks.
