    If I were to write an update letter or something to a SOM, would it be better for me to
    address the letter to the admissions committee or to the dean of admissions??

    thanx

    I don't know for sure, but I addressed my letters to the Dean, since s/he was the one whose name was signed at the bottom of my waitlist letter. With my Penn letter, for instance, Dr. Grippi (the Dean) signed my waitlist letter, so I responded to him. When I talked to the Director of Admissions, however, she was also familiar with it as it goes in your file anyway, so everyone on the committee has access to it.

    I'm curious if there's a defined standard regarding what's appropriate here.

    You can always do both:

    Dear Dean Blah Blah and the Committe on Admissions,

    Thats what I did.

    my wait list letter said to forward everything to the admissions committee, but my interviewer emailed me and said to write, call, or email the dean. Who should I address my letter to? My guess is the dean, and it will be added to my file. :confused:

    I started my letters with

    "Dr. (dean of admissions) and Members of the Committee on Admissions,"

    and I adressed the envelopes to the Dean of Admissions.
