Hi, I am applying to the class of 2017 and I have a few questions. I just reached out to my BGO last week for the first time. My BGO gave me a very lukewarm response. My BGO said that they do not get any information about applicants until late august and the Admissions Board will not begin meeting until the last week of September. I felt is was a "dont call me-Ill call you" response. So my question is as follows: I see people listing last year that some people received their LOAs in July and August. If this is the case how do they receive them without their file going in front of the admission board? I would like to maximize any opportunity I have which includes the possibility of being eligible for an LOA ( I am not saying I am worthy of an LOA just that I would like to be considered).
