Hey,

I've been reading the forum for a while, but this is my first post. So I applied to columbia and cornell and never heard back. I know this pretty much means I won't receive an interview, but I am planning on writing a letter to each school just to see what's up. My question is, who should I address my letter to? would be inappropriate to write to the dean? Does anyone have the names of the deans of either school? Thanks,

Personally, I addressed all of my LOIs to the Admissions Committee and tried to email the Dean a copy if I was REALLY interested in the school. I would call the school that you're interested in sending an LOI and see what they recommend (i.e. who to send it to, etc.) since every school is a little bit different. A note on Columbia: I didn't apply there, but a few of my friends said that their website specifically asked that applicants NOT send in letters and other extra stuff. I would check up on that info to make sure that an LOI won't actually end up hurting your application. GL :)
