Just a few questions: 1) I sent an informal letter of intent to my first choice when I accepted my waitlist spot--is it too late to send a real letter of inent saying "I will withdraw from all schools if accepted"? I wrote the first letter before I had any acceptances, so now I could make it stronger. 2) I would like to address it to the dean, but also to the admissions committee. What's the best way to write that? Dear who? And what would I write on the envelope? 3) OK, so I admit I have been lazy and should have sent out letters of interest & updates a while ago, but until Wed. I'm caught up in exams. Is it too late to update schools and tell them I'm still interested? I have 5 waitlists so it's kind of overwhelming to me to write so many letters since they have to be perfect. Any comments about these letters in general? Have you sent them yet, or do you plan to? p.s. Is it absolutely necessary to send updated final transcripts to schools you are waitlisted at? I don't think my grades will be very good this semester. Thank you!
