    Be sure to include any updates about anything new that has occurred since your interview.

    I agree with the above posters about format. My only tidbits of advice are to really think about what you want to write and be honest....I think it'll come through. Also, be specific. Phrases like "I'll get an excellent education here" and "I'd be a good fit" are meaningless unless you back them up. Good luck

    Does anyone know who it is best to address this to? Adcom? Dean of Admissions? Also, email or snail mail?

    This was posted on the other LOI thread and bears repeating:

    Made me re-think my Penn LOI; luckily I have some time to revise it before the waitlist there starts moving. A goodly post (although for some reason there are random question marks inserted into it for me, no matter, good content)
