@Giants84: Thanks! Yeah, I saw an article that says it’s perfectly acceptable to send a LOCI if it’s past the range the school estimates that they’ll make a final decision. I definitely do not think there is anything wrong with reaching out especially if it’s a school you are genuinely interested in attending!
