Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Loraine Cohen
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.
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.
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.
