Admission Letter / December 7, 2018 / Heidi Wallace
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.
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.
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.
