I don't really know. I have sent a few out, but maybe I'm shooting myself in the foot. Who knows? My LOCI was paired with a few updates to my resume, so maybe that approach would work.
For what it's worth, I was just reading an article on US News about this. The link is:http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/get-in-law-school/2011/01/18/goodbye-and-good-luck
Of note it states:
"2. If you have updated grades, jobs, honors, awards, or other information, do email schools and let them know. Send an updated transcript through LSAC as well."
But it also states:
"3. Do not send extra essays or letters just because you are waiting for an admission decision. Wait until you are waitlisted. The only exceptions are updates (as per #2, above) and thank-you notes after visits or interviews."
Maybe I avoided the taboo of the LOCI by pairing it with my resume update. Also, although I am unable to locate the article, I'm pretty sure I read a statement from Dean Deal at Stanford that LOCI were welcome, even if you hadn't heard anything yet. Obviously, this doesn't suggest much about Columbia, but if Stanford is ok with it, maybe Columbia would be too. But, again, who knows? I certainly don't.
