Addendum Worthy?
« on: January 20, 2008, 05:38:21 PM »
This semester I am a Teaching Assistant for an upper level management course, is this something thats worth notifying to schools that I have yet to hear from?

I also held a consulting position with a major financial services firm over winter break; maybe I could just send in an updated resume with the job and the TA position listed on it.
2L and counting...

Hmm, what would you say about a school that I have been deferred at?

If it were me, I'd wait until the middle of February or so, and then send a LOCI where you prominently highlight what you've been doing in the past few months.

a LOCI is actually best sent before you even get a decision- it shows them just how interested you really are- that's the title of letter after all.

and i think everyone else agrees with that statement.

Are LOCI's best sent through email or snail mail?

undoubtedly email. much more personal and more importantly- quicker. you want your LOCI to arrive as soon as possible

Thanks for all the advice! I went ahead and sent out customized letters of continued interest via email with my new resume attached to every school I hadn't heard back from yet  except for Emory... they require all additions to one's file to be faxed or sent through snail mail.

Just so you know, IamAnXman is a flame who has stepped up his flaming from funny to annoying and now might have hit upon legitimately harmful. Be cautious about accepting his advice.
