Thanks for the additional info!
Starting to think I definitely need to write a LOCI. How long was yours, if you don't mind me asking? I have yet to write one, and have little to no idea what I'm doing.
This blog has a great page on writing LOCI's. I described a few specific characteristics of the school that I like, calling out a particularly clinic and explaining why it makes sense with my background. I then updated my application slightly, describing developing responsibilities at my job and other 'outside of work' activities I've been involved in. I then just gushed about my dreams to attend and said I would accept if given an offer.
The whole thing fit on one page. Write one!
