Admission Letter / December 5, 2018 / Tami Silva
Be specific and give examples. A generalized vague letter will not help your student. Writing a personal statement can be one of the most daunting elements of an application process but it is crucial that you invest sufficient time and effort in getting it right. Whilst your grades may allow you to demonstrate your academic achievements the personal statement provides an admissions board with an opportunity to learn about you as an individual. You therefore need to write a personal statement that captures the attention of the busy admissions officer whilst also effectively communicating your strengths ambitions and motivations.
You are usually asked to author this by someone that you know well either from your business or personal circles. Having direct knowledge about the subject of your letter should make it easy to expound on their character strengths personal attributes and accomplishments. In spite of this it may still be an overwhelming prospect for many. So how to start... As I just mentioned get additional information from the person. You may know them personally as they hang out at your house but find out what their other outside interests and accomplishments have been. Make sure you know the specifics of what is being asked for in the letter.
Get a copy of the requisite for the letter. This information is usually on the college or scholarship application instructions. If it is their first job find out why THEY think they are qualified. Review their resume together for further insights. The letter itself... The recipient their title and the address must be on the letter. Also for college admission letters reference the candidate s name and social security or admission ID number. If you have a job with official stationary use it. It adds a more professional touch. In the opening paragraph confirm why you are writing the letter. For example you could begin with a sentence like this.
