    I can't help you with the letter itself, but I believe you mean on writing a letter of interest as opposed to a letter of intent. A letter of intent should(ideally, morally, ethically, blahblah) be sent to only one school -- your top choice. A letter of interest is sent to many of your favorite schools, but doesn't explicitly state "If you accept me, I will definitely go to your school!" Just wanted to clear that up...though I'm not sure it matters :laugh:

    I didn't know the difference between these two types of letter. I am waiting to hear from my two state schools. I like these two schools equally.

    Do people usually send letter of intent after they have been put on waitlist or something? Or would it be alright to send it before that while I await a post-interview decision?

    Ideally I would like to send letter of intent to both of these two schools...can't do that? :)

    Thanks.
    S.

    It should look like this:

    Dear Dean Snooty,
    Thank you for keeping my file in your drawer for the past 3 months and not throwing it out. Please feel free to use it as reading material when taking a dump.
    I would like to reiterate my interest in your school despite it's horrendous location, stinky facilities and incompetent faculty. I promise to be your b***h for as long as it takes me to get into my dream school.

    Regards,
    Desperado

    Also, be sure to include a photo of yourself in a compromising position.
