A few weeks ago I was placed on the waitlist at my top choice school. I have some legit updates to share and the school accepts updates but no LOInterest/Intent. I was planning to send a letter in march/april, but then saw some articles online saying it's better to spread out communication with waitlisted schools (ideally every 4 weeks). Does anyone have advice on whether spreading out communication/updates over time makes a difference? Would it just be better to submit one letter?
