Hi everyone,

I am currently waitlisted at my top choice and have 3 weeks before CTE deadline where I hold an acceptance. Is it worth writing a LOI and appropriate to mention this in the letter? Thank you!

Also should I say the school name I am accepted to or just be more vague if you think a lOI is a good idea

Mention anything you can, as it is last chance

This^^^^. "Worth it" is highly subjective, since they are probably not going to care about anything you say at this point, but it's now or never, and if you'll ever wonder "What if?", now is the time to lay all your cards on the table and see what happens. If it were me, I'd expect nothing and take my shot. As I said, it's probably not going to make a difference, but it's certainly not going to hurt, and you never know. Good luck!!!
