Letters don't matter, and likely will be discounted.

I disagree.  Letters from those kind of folk do count for something.  Though...

Now, if he goes out to lunch with the dean, and says something like, "You know, there's this kid nycnyc711 who would make a good fit at your school," then that might have some pull.

You don't want someone important to simply recommend you -- you want them to go to bat for you.

...this is much more desirable and has a much greater impact.
