Admission Letter / December 10, 2018 / Nanette Watson
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.
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.
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.
