Admission Letter / December 10, 2018 / Nanette Watson
One of the ways in which you can attract the attention of the admissions board is through opening your statement with an interesting hook that will attract the reader s attention. For example you may have been asked to write a personal statement that outlines how you are a good communicator. If you introduce the topic with a statement such as "When it comes to strong communication I have a secret skill. I have a special ability that not many people have is rarely recognized but is always appreciated..." This is much more effective than "I am a good communicator because of the following..." and will make the reader want to read on.
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.
Whilst you may be tempted to use an online grammar or spelling correction program you should bear in mind the fact that these are computer driven and thus will not be able to read and edit your document with a true understanding of what your intentions actually were. Successful admission letters and personal statements are not simply about good grammar and spelling they are about what you say and how you say it. These applications could affect the rest of your life invest in the services of a professional writer in order to make sure you get it right. When actively seeking information from colleges you will need to write a letter to the college admissions office.
