Admission Letter / December 7, 2018 / Delores Kane
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.
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.
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.
