Hi, I am going to start sending update/interest letters to schools essentially begging for an interview. I've read through a lot of the threads on writing these update letters, and just need a consensus as to a few things:

-Who should I be addressing this to? This was one question that I couldn't really find a clear answer to.

-Should I just update them on my current activities and etc? I got a 2nd author paper submitted to Cell and have progressed much in a new project for my MS program, with another possible paper. And w/ these updates, should I basically just throw it out there that I the school is a top choice and I would like to be considered further for an interview?

THanks ahead of time, happy holidays (or not for some... okay... many haha)
