Admission Letter / December 6, 2018 / Denise Barnes
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.
I ve seen it many times. He or she will attach an affidavit form to the request implying that your responses must be under oath. In my view this is an unfair debt collection practice under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Requests for Admission are not made under oath. To imply that they are is an attempt to intimidate a party into making admissions. Or to add to the general stress and difficulty of responding at all with the increased probability of a failure to respond at all. I believe that people receiving this sort of requests for admissions should strongly consider amending their answer to include a counterclaim under the FDCPA.
Give them one good reason why you are considering going to college there. All you need is just a basic letter. An example of one can be found below. The name and address of the college you want to apply to as well as the name of the dean of admissions at the top of the letter goes here. Dear ABC college... I am a senior at XYZ high school in city state. I would like to obtain some information on different colleges that I may choose to attend after graduation. Because ABC college offers electrical engineering I am considering enrolling at your school because I am interested in the subject.
