Her blog makes it sound like you should. She might believe that if you are both a person who wants to go to SLS and a person who should get admitted to SLS, you should have had something noticeable happen in the five months since you submitted and you should want to tell him about it...

Maybe not. Meh.

So sorry if this is obvious and I'm missing it, but where in the blog do you see this?

The only part in the blog is that she supports LOCIs (when there's something to say) if you submitted early in the cycle and are still UR

I went ahead and sent a LOCI after reading the blog post. Didn't have anything new to add- just mentioned last semester's grades and how Stanford is my top choice. Complete since 9/18, figured it couldn't hurt so we'll see what happens...

Complete early October and nothing so far (just checked status checker).

For someone who is a year removed from school, and doing the same job and extracurriculars as I was when I applied four months ago, is there any point in sending in an loci? All I could think is a quick two sentences stating roughly that if I am accepted then I will attend, and anything more would be more or less superfluous bs.

Thanks for all the future help & suggestions.

if you are able to make thoughtful connections between the stuff you are doing now and some programs offered by stanford -- and if you haven't already explained those connections in your original application -- you should write a LOCI based on that.

Submitted for review 11/18. Thanks to MOTM's post, I'm seriously conflicted about whether or not I should be sending a LOCI now: what's the consensus? Send now, ask questions later?

Every night I go to bed wondering, "Is tomorrow the day I will get into Stanford?"

Then I check the status checker and discover the answer is no.

Maybe a bunch of medicore and pointless LOCIs will make the non-LOCI bunch look like cool calm bros in contrast?

Or maybe none of it matters because almost all of are doomed anyway?

No November applicants have been rejected yet, so you don't know if you're a soft hold or not. Unless you have something INCREDIBLE to add, I'd wait. I submitted a LOCI last month but that's only because I thought my new softs would make a big difference to my application.

Edit to vent: STANFORD! SOME MOVEMENT! PLEASE!

Would getting a promotion at work be a big difference soft? It's not that big of a promotion either, I just went from sales associate to sales lead in three months since starting my first job.

The high school mock trial team I'm coaching is also on their way to quarter and hopefully semi-finals, although I'm not sure how comfortable I'd feel saying that I'm making a difference in the team's success because it's the students that are competing and not me.

Previously I was wondering if a LOCI talking about how I can contribute back to the school because of my history of contributing back to the community would work. I'm a November app.
