To ensure that all the important parts of the letter are included and to help you organize your thoughts create an outline of your admissions letter. Ensure that everything is included that you need and wish to highlight. Draft and Rewrite Very rarely will a first draft of an admissions letter be the version that you use for your college application. Good writing is a process of writing and rewriting. Allow yourself plenty of time to outline draft and rewrite your admissions letter. Your college admissions letter is an important piece of the college application and could mean the difference between an acceptance and a rejection. By following a few simple steps and allowing yourself enough time to work on the letter you can greatly increase your chances of earning that acceptance.
I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for "full name" who is applying for acceptance to your university. You want to make sure the recipient knows immediately what this letter is referencing. The body of the letter.. You should identify how long and in what capacity you have know this person. It can be as simple as a "family friend for 20 years". Don t be afraid to point out background information about a strong family foundation. Personalizing the letter makes for a more interesting read. Next outline the accomplishments attributes and interests of the person and relate them back to why these factors make your candidate an outstanding choice.
Since you are going to be seeking information from many different colleges you do not want to write one individual letter for each college. This can be very time-consuming and tedious work. You will want to create one letter or template that can be individualized for each college. Make one generic letter and then print it however many times you need to and send it to whatever colleges you are interested in. Your letter should be addressed to the college admissions office. You should address the dean of admissions and tell them you are very interested in their college and you are seriously considering enrolling.
