from reading dean Deal's blog i think a LOCI is helpful only if it has new information. Don't send a LOCI that reads like "I really want to come to stanford"...... I mean they know that. If you have something that u seriously think can push you from the soft hold to the admit pile, send it ASAP. We are in March...stanford starts to make most of its decisions in March and April.
Hmm, I disagree a bit here. At least from what I've read on Dean Deal's blog, sending in an LOCI (even if it doesn't have new information) can signify that you are still interested in the school/taking an proactive stance throughout your application process. It doesn't hurt to express interest again after a couple of months of silence. It also lets them know that you're not necessarily set on another school.
by just submitting a LOCI, you are showing interest. What separates a good LOCI from another is the content. I doubt that just coming across as still interested without having much to offer would help you tremendously.
