My personal statement had a detailed paragraph on Why UVA, but now I'm considering sending in a LOCI in addition. Should this be a formal document written to the Dean or just an email to the admissions office indicating that I'm still very interested? I think my dilemma is that I'm not sure what more to say that I didn't cover in my original personal statement and I don't want to be redundant. How lengthy does an LOCI have to be? Those of you who sent one in, what format did you use, how long was it, and what did you include?
EDIT: My application was submitted 1/7 so it's been more than two months.
I'd probably do a LOCI? I sent a one page one in to the Dean. He responded right away and said I should hear back shortly...that was on Monday Afternoon. I submitted 1/10.
I wrote it as a formal document.
