Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Tami Silva
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.
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.
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.
