Admission Letter / December 5, 2018 / Annabelle Maddox
I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for "full name" who is applying for acceptance to your university. You want to make sure the recipient knows immediately what this letter is referencing. The body of the letter.. You should identify how long and in what capacity you have know this person. It can be as simple as a "family friend for 20 years". Don t be afraid to point out background information about a strong family foundation. Personalizing the letter makes for a more interesting read. Next outline the accomplishments attributes and interests of the person and relate them back to why these factors make your candidate an outstanding choice.
Since you are going to be seeking information from many different colleges you do not want to write one individual letter for each college. This can be very time-consuming and tedious work. You will want to create one letter or template that can be individualized for each college. Make one generic letter and then print it however many times you need to and send it to whatever colleges you are interested in. Your letter should be addressed to the college admissions office. You should address the dean of admissions and tell them you are very interested in their college and you are seriously considering enrolling.
Over the years I have written letters for business associates. However my favorites to write are for young students who are applying for colleges scholarships or their first job. These are personal reference letters and I love getting the chance to sit with these young adults and talk about their futures and aspirations. These conversations help me in writing letters that are relevant meaningful and honest. As a result I have become the first stop for many of my four children s friends who are in need of a letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation should be one of the easiest pieces of correspondence to compose.
