Only appropriate after being waitlisted. Your continued interest is implied if you have not withdrawn your application.
I mean, if you didn't submit a Why UVA, I could see it being alright...but be extremely brief and if possible combine it with a substantive update (promotion, fall semester grades, etc.)
An update to your application is fine. I always encourage sending a Why UVA if you didn't with your application and haven't heard back. Also encourage sending in substantive updates whenever possible. A LOCI is a different animal, and only makes sense if the adcomms don't already assume that your interest is still present.
