    would you suggest sending letters of interest pre-interview, esp to ones that people are still reporting IIs for? I don't know how much help it would be since I already sent update letters a couple months ago, so it would just be reiterating my fit for the schools and vice versa. Thank you for...

    Does it look bad to send both a letter of interest and letter of intent to the same school?

    So my story is like this. School A interviews me and offers me a position on the waitlist in October 2021, I graciously accept and shortly after send them a letter of interest. Time passes by and I hear back from other schools. At this time, School A is my first choice and I want to let them...

    When to send "Letter of Interest" after being waitlisted

    Hi All, If someone is waitlisted for a school 2 weeks post-interview, how many weeks after receiving this news would you recommend they wait before sending a follow-up "Letter of Interest"?

    Sending Update Letters/Letters of Interest

    I'm honored to have been to six MD/PhD interviews already. It's starting to come near the time where I think I should send an update letter or a letter of interest to some of my earlier interviews.

    One of the schools that I was waitlisted at is adamant about sending updates and expressing interest. I interviewed there mid-September and was waitlisted mid-October. I am just curious about what the format of these updates should look like, along with what an appropriate length is. Plus, how...
