so, a lot of the people giving advice to us waitlisters have suggested sending letters to the deans/admissions directors/whoever about every month or so. i'm planning on doing this for one school in particular. i've already sent in a letter of intent about a month and a half ago. my question is, after the letter of intent, what kinds of letters are these that people send each month? just updates? reiterations of the letters of intent/interest? it seems like there would be a pretty fine line between something meaningful and then something that is just plain pestering. let me know what you guys think or have done in the past. thanks!

yeah, i wanted to ask the same thing. i initially wanted to wait and send the letter of intent until may, when the lists start to move, but the dean of the school said to send it in asap, which was a month ago. i guess we should send in updates and letters that show are interest even more. any input though would help.

I'd say any letter with NEW information about you that would make you more appealing for them to choose. Otherwise, they won't care.
