I just got in off of Wisconsin's wl... All I can say is campaign, campaign, campaign. Let them know you're interested, and make them remember your name. Of course, don't be annoying... But I emailed, a week later talked to the dean, week after that visited and met with the dean, the next week I sent a thank-you card, and the week after that I sent in my LOCI. So yeah, and I had another letter of recommendation sent to the school by an alumni specifically saying why I should get in. And it worked! Either they now want me, or they gave in, but I'm happy either way.
