Hey guys, I don't want to do others, myself, or the school a disservice by sending out more than one LOintent--so I just wanted to get the language straight.

"i will enroll if accepted" -- duh, LOintent

just saying "my top choice school" without the "i will enroll" guarantee -- LOinterest or LOintent?

"at the top of my list" --LOintent or LOinterest (i'm leaning toward LOinterest)

"i would be excited to get an acceptance" -- LOinterest or LOintent?

thanks..

First two sound like letter of intent... last two sound like letters of interest.

Just say you would be excited to have an opportunity to study medicine there. I personally don't like the top of list stuff, it is less direct towards the school and not as strong, my opinion.

Be honest. If you'd go to School A above any other if you were to be accepted, say so. If you just really want to go there, say that instead.

I spoke w/ someone in admissions the other day and their take was much like I expected. Basically since nothing is legally binding, they treat it as such. They look at it as strong interest, but they realize its not binding and so put a commensurate amount of weight on it.
