I recently interviewed at this one school in the Northeast and would love to attend if admitted. This would involve paying OOS tuition, but I am convinced that it's worth the price. So, knowing that my file would go to committee soon my interview, I submitted a letter of intent to the admissions committee stating reasons for why I would be an excellent fit and that I would attend the school if accepted. However, I am now regretting my decision to send this letter - not because it essentially binds me to the school - but because it might be perceived as irresponsible and could adversely affect my chances for acceptance. The decision was based on a frank assessment of my situation: my stats are pretty average if not below average, it was getting somewhat late in the application cycle, and I hadn't received many interviews (i.e. I was lucky to even get invited to interview at this particular institution). I'm not sure if my letter was even brought up during the subsequent meeting, as according to my latest status change, it appears that I wasn't rejected after my file went to it's final review (this school utilizes a point system). Many of the people to whom I have spoken to about this stated that the letter was "desperate" and/or "pathetic." I know that what's done is done, but if this is the case, is there anything I can do to help the situation in the meantime?
