I got the same e-mail about being under second review (apparently the future waitlist). Anyways, I got excited and set up a tour for this Friday and I was looking for advice about my LOCI. Do you guys think it would be better to personally hand in a LOCI, wait till after the visit and include some details about how it all went, or finally personally give a LOCI and follow up with a "thank you" note? I have pretty low numbers, so I have to do everything I can. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Don't personally hand in a LOCI. Not because it's a bad idea.... But you haven't been WL'ed yet and you don't want to make those redundant. A personal visit says a ton and a supplemental LOCI does little extra. Plus, it may come off as a bit disingenuous handing them a statement speaking to how much you want to attend, when the statement was written prior to your visit.
I would write a thank you letter and then begin the LOCI process after you've been WL'ed
