Personal text: Think of any contacts that might be able to help in this situation. Did you hit it off with your alumni interviewer? Get in touch with him or her and see if he or she can follow up on your behalf. Find teachers who can write additional recommendation letters. If you can think of anyone else who may be able to help make your case, like a coach or non-school professional who knows you, ask if they could write you a letter too. Try to send your new letters of recommendation and your response at the same time to avoid overwhelming the admissions office.
Keeping a balance with the admissions office is essential. Persistence can pay off in that follow-up emails and letters can set you apart from the less active applicants who may get lost in the shuffle. However, you don't want to be over the top. Excessive contact, or actions, can irritate the admissions office. Try to follow up on everything, but wait a reasonable amount of time to do so.
