I am seeking some serious advices on how I should go about sending out appeal letters to schools. Should I send them out to the dean of the SOM or simply to the committee? My second Q: I know some of you have already asked this before, but what do you think I should include in my appeal letters? I am thinking about updating my activity (not much to add other than updating some of my research work...kind of sad since I've been out of school for several years so can't add any more class grades or anything), re-emphasizing my strong points that may have been overlooked (like...I'm motivated, work hard..., but then again, do they really want to hear this?), and finally end the letter by saying "please do reconsider my appl...". Sounds a bit cheesy, weak??? I really want to write effective, quite persuasive letters (without any tone of whining and desperation) because there're some schools that are my top choices and that I thought I had a fair chance of at least getting interviews...but haven't got any, at least not from these folks. HELP!!!
