So yeah, maybe I'll draft one tonight. Something short, like 2 paragraphs just reiterating I'm interested and maybe talk a little about my senior paper i'm writing that will be published over the summer.



okk guess I'll start drafting toooooo lol... and at this point I can't even be excited about Columbia because Harvard is going to give me high blood pressure!


Hah well Columbia is my top choice since my SO is in NYC so I'm pretty stoked about knowing where I'll be next year. Then again, if I get a JR2, I don't know if I could turn that down. The best this Josh could do for me right now is waitlist me so I don't feel like crap for applying but I don't have to make a tough decision.

Haha yeah I just want to be able to make a decision with the choices I have (I will also likely be at Columbia), but this whole being limbo thing at Harvard is messing with my head!

Preparation + Actual Writing + Editing + Proofreading + Going to nearest mail place + mailing it = 2 hours and 8 minutes. All hail Usain Bolt of LOCIs. :D

I don't have high hopes for HLS, but LSAC did just send them an updated transcript for me today. Maybe that'll remind them I exist!

I'm confused (and need coffee). Are you sending an LOCI because you were held? Or because you've been under review since Thanksgiving.

Sorry no movement here- I've been UR since the beginning of November so I sent one to remind them that I exist. If I get held after this then I'll probably send another LOR. But let's hope I get a JR1 instead :)

Thoughts on whether to address LOCIs to JR or to the entire admissions committee?

Since hold e-mails have JR signature, I think "Dear Mr. Rubenstein" is TCR.

What if I'm trying to beat JR to the punch? I haven't heard ANYTHING from Harvard but I'm gonna write a short update/love letter and then if I get held, probably go buy some blue sweatshirts and start apartment hunting in Morningside Heights...

Application Under Review since 12/6.
I've already been rejected by Columbia and Penn, so I figure that my fate at Harvard will not be too different. Do I have reason to believe otherwise?

Is anyone else one here still forgotten, too? I still haven't gotten a hold or anything. Considering sending a LOCI but not sure if it would be better to wait til I'm officially held/rejected (with the second option being more likely. By a lot).

I'm still here...not sending a LOCI; it's not like they have any doubt I'd be interested, so I'd rather not bother them. I am equally pessimistic!
