how to demonstrate interest?

<p>So, UChicago is my absolute number 1 dream school, but it is at best a high reach for me. I am the type of mind they are trying to attract, and I want to know how to demonstrate interest to the university. I already traveled down to the school to tour and interview, so I am not sure how to best do this. Thanks!</p>

<p>Write a killer Why UChic essay.</p>

<p>^^Haha, touch</p>

<p>Follow up on your interview (thank you notes are nice!), and if you're waitlisted, follow up on your application. Send updates of additional awards/accomplishments.</p>

<p>I did send my interviewer a thank you and asked her a question. I haven't heard a reply back yet, though.</p>
