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.
