I'm going to go against what others are saying and say to save your LOCI for when you actually get waitlisted. You're not going to get dinged so that's not a factor and Penn is really slow so you don't even know if you're getting WLed yet.
Errr... I would normally agree with this... But someone who was confident they were going to be WL'd at UVA sent one in and got an acceptance shortly after... If you're really interested and have enough material to write an additional LOCI, I don't think this one could hurt.
I speak as someone who rode out the Michigan, Duke, GULC, and NU waitlists last year (obviously I didn't get in). If there's any way to keep yourself off a waitlist, do it.
It's a little different since their stats are in the target range for Penn, they wrote a Why Penn already, and there are others from that same date range still waiting.
