Mail Emailing Program Coordinators

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding emailing Program coordinators about application status. I have about 56 applications that have not been responsed to and would like to know the status.
How would you word such an email?

Write your name and AAMC number.
Begin with showing your interest in the program (you may state specific reasons why you are interested)
Tell them that you applied and you are eager to know whether you are considered or not, and mention that you deserve the chance for the interview because you are interested and you may mention your qualifications for the position (high scores, experience..)
Finish by you appreciating the large number of applicants and how busy they are reviewing the application

Finally you can simply call them (if the director number or e mail is not listed which is the usual case, call the co ordinator)

I am sad to tell you that by now, more than 80% have already decided who they want to interview and already sent their invitations, so don't expect much, but be enthusiastic while talking to them.

Good luck..
