Considering writing a LoCI now based on earlier discussions in this thread, but I'm afraid I don't have much that needs updating (out of school, in the same job, blah blah blah). I'm tired of New York too, but NYU is a dream school for so many reasons (of which not having to uproot my life is maybe the least). I wonder if it wouldn't be too horrible to send a "no, really, this is my first choice" letter at this point, but I'm borderline, so it's not like they'd otherwise YP me or anything like that. It would be the first ding or WL that would *really* hurt, though.
I think writing a heartfelt and extremely well-written LOCI about how much you love NYU and why you want to attend would be a strong submission, even if you don't really have a substantive update like new grades or a new job. But I'd wait to send it until you get a WL (and hopefully you won't), especially since it's only been a month that you've been UR.
