hm...maybe:

I am excited about the possibility of attending [school].  Your institution is my first choice, and if offered admission, I would enthusiastically join [school] class of 2010.


not perfect, but maybe it'll jog your brain...
It's important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It's not only life of babies, but it's life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet.

I mean, there needs to be a wholesale effort against racial profiling, which is illiterate children

Tell them WHY they are your 1st pick. You could say something like

"Dear Mr. Law School Dean,

During the months following the submission of my application, I have been doing additional research on the law schools to which I applied. The purpose of this letter is to share with you the reasons why I have come to the conclusion that the University of --- is my number one choice law school and why I would be an exceptional addition to the University’s student body."

If you need ideas on programs, go to their website. Be careful promising attendance though, unless you are absolutely sure you mean it.

Why? It's not like a LOCI is a binding contract.

I think you need a powerful sentence vs. a paragraph.  Consider: ”If I am offered admissions at the University of -------- I will accept immediately without reservations."  I think if you put this in italics, so it stands out in the letter, it will help.  I used this to get off a waitlist, and it worked...

I have a friend (hhm hhm) who, along with a seat deposit, signed a little postcard saying she'll attend in the fall (+ saying she'll accept a scholarship).  Can the school fret if she goes elsewhere?

No, I just think it's rude. (Totally my opinion though). I don't promise something unless I mean it-- no matter to whom.

I think they could, but they all just choose not to....I mean if you sign something saying you'll go, you'll accept a scholarship, and you'll withdraw from all other schools....and you don't follow through, I bet technically a school could make a stink about it.  Will they?  Almost certainly not, since people seem to do it often, or at least a few a year.
