I thought of this, so I make a veiled reference to this by saying something along the lines of I have a personal connection to boston but also that I don't want to sacrifice any of my legal education which is why Harvard is my ideal. The res tof my application, personal statement, etc make it clear that boston is not ALL I care about, but I just need something to make it more "why Harvard"-y than just simply the fact that its harvard, ya know?
loving the commiseration. It is SO difficult to not feel like wtf's the point because I know this LOCI is likely to have little to no impact no matter what I say!
Nah, I think of it this way: LOCIs are like noses- pretty much everybody has one, so if you do, nothing special; but if you don't, definitely gets you noticed. I doubt they really read them much, but at least you checked off the box of doing as much as you can while wiling away waiting for them.
Yes - I guess this is my problem - right now I have no nose. But if I have nose I want it to be a nice enough nose to be a Harvard nose...
Uh basically I mean I cant think of anything worthwhile to say in LOCI - except "yes I still want to go to Harvard"...but I know I better get around to sending it
