Types of LOCIs and spacing them out

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 13, 2013 6:14 pm

I'm trying to figure out which LOCI's to send first:
1. LOCI with grade updates
2. LOCI with updated resume
3. LOCI with an attached LOR
4. LOCI with nothing else

Might be a good idea to space these out on a weekly basis? Thoughts?

That sounds awful. I'd be pissed if I was hearing from you on a weekly basis.

Really, one (MAX TWO) is enough.

Also, I base my opinion on nothing but my gut.

I agree. I heard someone sent in 6! Given two, I think I'll send one with my resume and one with my LOR.

No kidding but people still send them, numbers or not. You'll be surprised how much it can do for you.

With transferring being such a black box, I think they could be marginally useful.
