Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Kristy Wall
One of the ways in which you can attract the attention of the admissions board is through opening your statement with an interesting hook that will attract the reader s attention. For example you may have been asked to write a personal statement that outlines how you are a good communicator. If you introduce the topic with a statement such as "When it comes to strong communication I have a secret skill. I have a special ability that not many people have is rarely recognized but is always appreciated..." This is much more effective than "I am a good communicator because of the following..." and will make the reader want to read on.
Additionally the admissions letter shows your critical thinking and writing skills which are important for college. The Topic When selecting a topic it is important that you choose one that will allow you to show your personality why you are a good candidate for the college allow you to demonstrate your writing abilities and answer the questions put forth on the application. Simple right? It s not an easy process but it can feel more manageable if you break it into smaller steps. Choose a topic that you are familiar and comfortable with. This is not the time to research a new subject. Examples of topics that might work include an experience from your past a hobby or an issue of personal importance.
What if You Deny Something You Should Have Admitted? There is a possible "sanction" for wrongly denying an admission requested of you. And that is that the court could require you to pay the other side s attorneys fees for the time spent trying to prove something that was sufficiently obvious that you should have admitted. I am not personally aware of any court under any circumstances that has awarded that sanction to anybody. I am sure it has happened but is it a significant risk? You decide. Most lawyers I know find some reason-just about any reason-to object to or deny them all.
