Well I just got waitlisted at Boulder today. I know their first deposit is due tomorrow, so would it be better to send it right away?

I've done this for 2 schools now...

E-mail them and ask which they prefer.  Both schools I contacted suggested I e-mail it to them, which I found somewhat surprising.

Yeah I may just email it to them. I did this with an addendum and it was put in my file right away. I'm just a little overwhelmed now because I just got it this afternoon, over the phone. And now I have to create a strong LOCI right away! Any suggestions??!

Yes, send it asap.
Here is a good thread on LOCI: http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,80496.0.html (especially Papa Bear's comments).

I read all of those, but how should I address it? To Whom It May Concern? Dear Admissions Council?

And also how should I start it? The first line needs to be a good one.

Doesn't really matter, but you can either use "Dear Sir or Madam" or address it to the dean of admissions.
