Admission Letter / December 6, 2018 / Hilary Kirby
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.
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.
