Any type of evidence you're going to get here is going to be anecdotal. Some people claim they work well, others claim not at all. I think it really depends on the situation that you're in at the school.

Perhaps if you're on a waitlist, and it comes down to you and one other applicant with almost identical statistics - a LOI would probably give you the edge.

Unfortunately - there's no way to tell for sure....

then let me clarify a bit: what are the feelings on a letter of interest post-interview pre-decision

just letting you know, at a pretty reputable school, I sent a letter of strong interest to the dean of admissions, thanking them for my interview and detailing the reasons why I would love to attend the school...

when I got my acceptance letter, the dean of admissions hand-wrote at the end of the letter "Thank you for your nice note". So, I think it really depends on the person you send it to, I don't think it could hurt
