Should it be the director of admissions? Should that blank be filled by "admissions committee member"? Should it be "admissions committee"?

Whatchy'all think? :]

I direct it towards the Dean/Director, with the assumption that the whole committee is reading it.

I always say "Admissions Committee," but I doubt it matters.

My advisor suggests that any letters be addressed "Dear Members of the Admissions Committee..."
