Yeah, the general admissions e-mail (I think it's admissions@law.stanford.edu).

You can do either, but I just put it in the body.


Thanks. I figure I'll send my letter tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I really, really love Stanford.

I think it would unwise to send a LOCI directly to Faye or another admissions staffer. SLS receives many updates such as LOCIs at the general admissions e-mail address, and likely has protocols to ensure that updates sent there a) do not become lost or forgotten and b) are quickly added to students' files. While sending a LOCI directly to Faye may get her initial attention, it may also run a higher risk of the LOCI not getting added to your file when you need it to. This is total speculation, but it doesn't seem unlikely; I'd play it safe.

Wow, BenJ, are you hand writing your LOCI? Now that is dedication.

Dean Deal and Members of the Admission Committee;

I am writing to express my continued interest in Stanford Law School. Since my last update, as you can probably see, I have learned several forms of beautiful Chinese calligraphy. It's quite stunning, huh? I thought you might like it. It was all for you.

Smooches,
BenJ

The debate wasn't over where he should physically send the letter but to whom he should address it (like in the body of the letter). I still feel it should read something along the lines of "Dear Dean Deal and Members of the Admissions Committee," rather than "Dear Members of the Admissions Committee" or "To Whom It May Concern" or some other alternative.

I was belatedly joining the conversation about which e-mail address they should use (one page back). I agree with you, though, that the letter should be addressed to Dean Deal and the Committee--don't let the other folks feel left out!

BenJ - alternatively, I (or any admit) can give you Dean Deal's digits and you can call her directly. She probably won't think it's at all creepy or inappropriate.

Wow. That's pretty amazing, actually. Just make Dean Deal know it's actual hieroglyphs, and not just you translating your Word document into Wingdings.

I had a dream last night that, after sending in my LOCI, Stanford turned my app to ED and then dinged me a few hours later via status checker. Which makes no sense on multiple levels. I think I'm going crazy.

Anyway, not including any hieroglyphs but will actually be sending the LOCI after reading it over a few times.

i've had more than one admissions-related dream this cycle. none quite as funny/nonsensical as yours, though, but i still felt like i was going nuts.
best of luck w/ the LOCI. hope you get it!!

I really just want an answer so I can make a final decision... I know it's probably a rejection, so I just hope it comes sooner than later
