Admission Letter / December 9, 2018 / Lidia Jenkins
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.
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.
Please send me any and all available information about your college. Please send me information about admission requirements courses financial aid and what housing options are available near campus. Please also include anything else you would like me to know about ABC college. The information you send can help me learn more about your college and making an informed decision about my future. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely John Q. student Feel free to use any variation of this letter you like. There is no set template and it can be used in whatever way you see fit as it is just an example.
