    OK
    I haven't heard back from any schools and am freaking out. I have a cGPA of 3.5 and an MCAT of 25. I am wondering if I should start sending out letters of interest to schools? I already sent one out but that is because the admissions specialist of that school said it would probably help.
    Thanks

    at this point i don't think you need to... if you haven't been wait listed, you're still being considered. plus, they KNOW you are interested in going there.. that's why you applied there.

    Yes, but it helps when you're not from the region from what I've heard.

    Goro has mentioned this before that it is best to sit tight and wait patiently.

    again, they know you're interested. your location has nothing to do with your interest.

    OP,

    Don't waste your time with letters of interest. You are in a stack of thousands of applicants that all WANT to go to the school. Let your application speak for itself in showing them how "special" you are. Once you get an interview, a thank you letter and/or letter of interest would be appropriate.

    And how would YOU interpret a non-binding contract from a desperate applicant, if you were the Admissions dean?
