Probably someone else that can answer this better but I definitely wouldn't try to make an LOI that long - just seems like it wouldn't get read (like a resume with lots of fluff). I have heard that LOIs need to be short, sweet, and to the point. Updates can be a little bit longer.
Well see that's kinda the thing about it. It is to the point. It's not really anything about me. It's about the reasons I want to attend their school, I just happen to have a lot of reasons. I feel if I take some things out it won't drive my point as well. What if I get it down to a full page, what do ya'll think then? Or should it be even shorter? Let me know so I can start dissecting this letter.
