Admission Letter / December 6, 2018 / Magdalena Schultz
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.
Send some to the debt collector and you ll see what I mean. A Use for the Requests There is a type of request for admission that could be useful though. This is a request that certain documents were created and sent by the debt collector. If you received a letter for example signed by John Doe Debt Collector dated August 15 2009 you might attach a copy to your requests for admission and ask them to admit that (1) the attached letter is a true and correct copy of a letter sent by John Doe Debt Collector (2) that it was sent on or about August 15 2009 (3) that John Doe was an employee of Debt Collector (4) that John Doe sent the attached letter in the normal course of his employment with Debt Collector and (5) that John Doe sent the attached letter in an attempt to collect a debt.
