Subject more or less says it all.

I submitted my application prior to reading much of the advice given w/in this forum, particularly the advice about being very crystal clear about S-T & L-T Career Goals.

Despite that weakness, I still am of the opinion that I will receive an interview, so factor that into the calculation.

Question: Should I submit an addendum that clearly outlines my goals, or should I hope that I have the opportunity to highlight these during my interview, should I receive one?

One factor worth considering: I have already been in somewhat regular communication with the admissions office, and I want to be sensitive to pestering them.

Thanks for input.

Essentially you want to submit another essay. Top schools won't let you do this and if anything will be viewed negatively. If you are still before the deadline then perhaps you can change an essay if that school does not review on a rolling basis.

Sometimes a school may ask for further information in which case you should submit an addendum, but again you will be asked. One reason schools won't do this is if they let you do it then they need to let everyone do it. An extra thousand essays at random times will make things very difficult for the admissions committee.

i agree, best bet is to wait it out and submit an extra essay is WL'd. Don't email them at this point.
