I'm in need of advice. I want to mention in my LOCI that the school to which I am writing the letter is my top choice. All things equal, it definitely is my favorite law school and I would truly love to go there. Unfortunately, even if I was accepted off of the waitlist I would still have to carefully consider my financial situation at that school (financial aid package) before deciding to go there instead of the school that I currently plan to attend. Should I simply say that the school "remains one of my top choices" or is it OK to say that it is my #1.
I know that my chances of getting off of this school's WL are slim. I also do not yet know how much money I will have in Stafford loans vs. private loans. That's why I would have to do some thinking and wouldn't be able to drop everything and go if I unexpectedly got the call in mid-summer. In this situation, is it still OK to state that the school is my top choice?
