Advice: What to do if early decision app is rolled over to regular pool?

Hello 7 Sage Community,

I applied early decision and my app is rolled over to regular pool. What could I do before another status update which will be around early February? I am not registered for the January LSAT. Should I submit a letter of continued interest?

Thanks for your time and help.

    You can certainly submit a letter of continued interest. Or if you haven't already submitted a "Why X" essay I would do that as well.

    if this is Berkeley then they will tell you simply to sit tight and wait

    Thank you @"andrew.rsn" My personal statement had a short paragraph at the end "Why X" school. I will try the letter of continued interest. How would you recommend crafting the letter of continued interest? Would you list visits, interactions with specific faculty, students, etc.?

    @yang9999 this is not for UC Berkeley but it is for University of San Diego. :)

    I think that if you have/will visit and have meaningful conversations or learn meaningful things that stick with you - then talking about said items in your letter and how they make you want to attend could help, or discuss reasons on why you believe you would be a great fit for USD. I think 7sage may have a section on continued interest letters in the "what to do if you're waitlisted" section.

    Goodluck!
