Beware that on the SPWL e-mail it assumes that you do not need to do much contact with them, they will do most contact with you.
That is, you can tell them if you have to go to Europe and etc. but you do not need to sent an e-mail to express your willingness to continue to be considered like you do for Upenn or NU. It will probably not hurt, but then on the other hand, they could have asked like many schools do to provide optional recs or optional essays.
I did sent a LOCI-like thing. That is primarily because I thought I had messed up something earlier in the application process.
After telling AS that I wanted to remain on the waitlist, she wrote back and said
AS wrote:Our first deposit is due May 2nd and the second June 1st so, if you remain interested, just before those deposit deadlines it’s always good to get in touch with us to let us know that you want to be considered if spaces become available.
For now there is nothing you need to do. However, do please feel free to continue to send me any updates to your application. I’m happy to be your point of contact in this process. And if you have any questions going forward, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
So my guess is that they actually do welcome a fair amount of communication, at least from the SPWLs.
