    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.

    Agreed, I addressed it to the Dean whose name was on the waitlist letter, assuming that it was understood that it was directed toward the entire adcom

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

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

    Call and try to get a name.

    If not:
