I've been nominated as a candidate to be named as one of my schools top 100 students (campus has ~30,000), which is significant; however, I won't know if I actually am named top 100 until early March. Should I earn that accomplishment I will use that as the opportunity to submit a LOCI. If I do not, however, should I send one despite the lack of additional accomplishments? I feel like a LOCI without a specific accomplishment will seem weak, but I worry that failing to make any contact could be seen as a sign of disinterest. Recommendations?

Eh, I don't think you have to worry about seeming "disinterested." I mean, it is Harvard after all. So if you don't have anything substantial at all to discuss, I don't think you should feel obligated to write one.

Aside from that, my personal advice would be to draft a LOCI now and write it as if you've already been named top 100. That way you'll have it ready in early March and can submit it ASAP if you get it. And if you find that the LOCI is strong even without the distinction as the centerpiece, you can just edit that out and submit it anyway if you don't get it.


Excellent advice regarding drafting the LOCI now and editing as necessary come early March! Thank you very much! This not only leaves me better prepared for whatever happens in early March, but it also gives me something to do to keep my mind occupied between now and then.

Thanks!


I sent mine in the body of the e-mail. You could do either. The formatting really won't matter.

For those of you who sent off a LOCI, did you just send it straight to JS? My hold email came from the JDadmiss email, and I assume that's where I'll probably be sending the LOCI. Just want to be sure!

i sent it to the jdadmiss e-mail; that was the return address of the hold e-mail, and sending it to JS directly seems to be a bit creepy, imo

Better question: Whom should it be addressed to? Or should it just say "to whom it may concern" or something to that effect?
