Thanks- Can you email?
Yes email to the admissions office and they will get you a confirmation within a week.
Is it appropriate to add why you feel that YOU would be an asset, or is it better to stick to why Stanford is best for you?
I've read a few excellent LOCIs of either type. Personally, my LOCI as it stands right now is mainly an update on my application and then explaining why SLS is my top choice. I didn't personalize my PS, and only submitted 1 targeted LOR, so I think this would probably be more effective than trying to sell myself some more. I'm hoping my fall grade update and additional LOR will help with the selling myself part of my application, along with my other application materials.
Got it- thanks! Do you know of anywhere I can look at some sample LOCIs? This is the only one I'm doing. I thought I was finally done with the essays... haha
