Admission Letter / December 9, 2018 / Ronda Frost
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.
Create an outline for your admissions letter using the basics of writing an essay. You ll need an introduction a body and a conclusion for the letter. Open the admissions letter with something interesting such as a quote intriguing fact or question. If you can engage your reader immediately he or she will want to continue reading. The body of your college admissions letter will cover the most important parts of the letter showing your uniqueness as an applicant and answering questions. This part will require careful planning. Finally the conclusion will bring your admissions letter to a logical close.
Choosing a topic that you re comfortable with is particularly important if you re feeling unsure of your writing skills or find writing the admissions letter to be particularly challenging. This will help build your overall confidence. Develop an Outline When writing the admissions letter you need to accomplish two things. First write a letter that demonstrates an understanding of writing basics. This means your admissions letter will have an introduction body and conclusion and will follow a logical path from one section to the next. The other essential thing you letter must do is answer the questions set forth by the school.
