I applied to UH 12/01/08 and am now in review as of 03/16/09 (and as of 02/11/09 before that.) I am thinking about writing a LOCI. The assistant dean of admissions "encourages new information that is important for the admissions committee to know." I applied to the JD/MPH dual degree program and just got accepted to UTH's School of Public Health. Does this count as something important and relevant and will sending a LOCI place me at the end of the review pile?
I'm worried because deposits on other schools have to be made soon..
Thank you, fellow applicants! ;]
Rubies, I am a dual-degree applicant as well (JD/MBA). When I received my MBA acceptance a few weeks ago, I went ahead and sent the law school an e-mail explaining that I had been accepted to the MBA portion of my dual-degree application. I hoped they would feel more confident in me as a dual-degree applicant who sincerely planned to do both and was qualified to do so.
They responded with a generic thank you e-mail and said that the information (probably just a copy of my e-mail) would be added to my file. So to answer your question, I'd say go for it but don't expect it to make much of a positive difference either. I think they are pretty stubborn in their commitment to keep one decision from influencing the other. At best, I think it might be a good tie-breaker for you with someone else.
