I'm assuming CU waits until the end of the application cycle to reconsider WL people? If that's true, you might want to wait until closer to March 15 to send it in so it's fresh in their minds.
Of course, the opposite could be true and sending it now might show that you have high levels of interest in attending.
My advise is to base it on your desire to go there. If CU is the school for you, and you'll definitely go if you get in, send it now and make it clear that you're passionate about their program. Otherwise, wait until later if another school's admission or scholarship offer would significantly change your mind.
I know it's not solid advise, but hopefully it helps a little
For a truly effective LOCI campaign, I think that you should be in contact through intervals until they finally collapse and admit you. Everyone that I've talked to who has been admitted through WL was very tenacious about it.
Could you please expand on this topic? I want to prepare for WLs, so any info would be helpful.
I was complete 12/21, and had an update 1/3. Hopefully that means a decision is coming.
I'd e-mail a few days after the WL I received (not CU because I probably wouldn't have attended anyways, not sure why I applied). Telling them that I was still interested and telling them about some bit of good news number wise (for me, it was a jump in GPA).
I waited a few weeks and snail mailed a formal LOCI including the numbers and professional successes.
I'll wait for a few more weeks and mail them an update.
Closer towards April I'll mail them again reminding them of my interest.
