Admission Letter / December 5, 2018 / Melinda Lucas
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.
To give a logical structure and form there are people who take different options to organize or form the letter according to the need. One of the standard ways to prose exposition is to be narrative in approach. Narrative means clearly describing oneself to put across all the points to the other person. There is no short cut in this type of approach but a linear form with easy and manageable sections. There are few who even take the analytic approach to organize the admission letter. In this type of approach there is a need to be analytic and make clear description of how beneficial and useful the individual can be to the organization or the institute.
The goal is to show you that typing up a letter to obtain information about whatever college or university you are interested in can be done very quickly. You will need to address each letter individually as well as personalize the letter with whatever school you are applying. The goal here is to have a template to make it very fast and efficient. Requests for admissions are a tool designed to simplify litigation. Like many such tools however they rarely work -except in a very limited way- and function more as a trap for the careless than anything else. If you are being sued for debt you should be aware of them both because the requests can be lethal to you if you ignore them-- and because the occasional carelessness of the lawyers for the debt collectors occasionally makes them a gambit worth trying.
