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.
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.
What if You Deny Something You Should Have Admitted? There is a possible "sanction" for wrongly denying an admission requested of you. And that is that the court could require you to pay the other side s attorneys fees for the time spent trying to prove something that was sufficiently obvious that you should have admitted. I am not personally aware of any court under any circumstances that has awarded that sanction to anybody. I am sure it has happened but is it a significant risk? You decide. Most lawyers I know find some reason-just about any reason-to object to or deny them all.
