Now, let's not go too far...

Held email 1/9/07
No interviews or other official correspondence
I just called and I was told a decision has been made...it's in the mail. Wow, I'm sure it was worth the wait.
Looking on LSN and here makes it seem that mostly WL letters are going out right now, so I'll bet (hope) that's what I will get. If I do get WL'd, I will always be able to brag about that to my children and my children's children

I think the phone call from Toby serves that purpose for them. Obviously they wouldn't base such a determination in the summer solely on a letter they received back in April.
I can see the letter having a slight value, letting them know in advance that you're likely to accept an offer if it comes your way. But then again, they can already presume that much for most borderline candidates anyway...and people that absolutely would not attend generally do not agree to stay on the WL. They probably have extensive experience with people changing their plans in the summer to attend HLS. In any event, a letter now probably inspires little confidence that your plans won't change drastically by the summer time. $0.03

Would you guys recommend sending a letter or an email in case you want to let the school know that they are your number one choice?
I think H knows that already...especially if you decide to stay on the waiting list. A message like that would be pretty meaningless, IMHO.

The following is off-topic, but since this thread is inherently off-topic anyway...and since MTG seems to keep checking here...why not?
MTG - Will you please describe your internship experience with Baker Botts this past summer? Was the work interesting/fulfilling? Were the people in charge patient and friendly? Did the associates seem stressed out? How tolerable do you think a career at that firm would be?
What real differences do you think exist (in terms of the employee's experience) among the top Houston firms? What drove you to choose BB? Have you heard rumors about the cultures and norms at other firms?
Are you actually going to the game in Norman? I can't tell what city that is in your avatar...is it New York or Chicago? I'll be in Chicago.
I think it will be an ugly, defensive game. I don't think OU will depend on its frosh QB too much because of the outstanding stable of RBs and the big OL. That will make for a low-scoring, ball control game. I'm sure UM will try to do the same. The defense on both sides will be similar, but the home crowd for OU is an edge. I also think the OU offense will be better than UM's. So, maybe 24-16 OU...love those April predictions...

You're a chick, right? Wow.
I agree with you, BTW, even though I am partial to the Rockets (I currently live in Houston).
