They are only appropriate after the school has communicated to you that you might get in but haven't yet - i.e., a waitlist.

Ditto that. All you'd be doing would be telling them that you are equally, if not more so, desperate to find out whether you got accepted.
of course, if four or five months have passed without any movement on status checker, I can see how maybe a quick, courteous, non-LOCI phone call may help to clear things up. I mean, it's just a quick blurb of ino. you are after...
When I talked to Dean Shealy she urged me to send them in, so I think you're wrong on that end. I don't think a letter stating how much you want to attend and adding new updates to your application can ever hurt. Call and ask the admissions office, they'll tell you the same thing.
Cool, well that clears things up, thanks. And now the letters will fly!
I will try the same thing with GULC, who by some true miracle just put me on their Preferred Waitlist. Despite their saying that "we'll contact you" in May, I will spend the next three weeks boosting my resume/transcript as much as humanly possible, and send 'em a professional Letter of Undying and Devoted Interest (LOUDI) in late March.
