Admission Letter / December 6, 2018 / Betty Harvey
Be specific and give examples. A generalized vague letter will not help your student. Writing a personal statement can be one of the most daunting elements of an application process but it is crucial that you invest sufficient time and effort in getting it right. Whilst your grades may allow you to demonstrate your academic achievements the personal statement provides an admissions board with an opportunity to learn about you as an individual. You therefore need to write a personal statement that captures the attention of the busy admissions officer whilst also effectively communicating your strengths ambitions and motivations.
Preparing carefully for the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) is another part to be focused. Studying and taking practice tests can help a lot. A good score in this exam will demonstrate your strong analytic quantitative and verbal abilities. This may include the subject exam in psychology. Although many schools do not ask for psychology exam test but many schools do so doing it and doing well can help. Application must be prepared carefully specifically with concern to written statements of your research interests. If you have planned for admission in graduate school of psychology make sure you show your writing skills well. It is essential for your application to pass as poor writing will drop your chances of being admitted.
Over the years I have written letters for business associates. However my favorites to write are for young students who are applying for colleges scholarships or their first job. These are personal reference letters and I love getting the chance to sit with these young adults and talk about their futures and aspirations. These conversations help me in writing letters that are relevant meaningful and honest. As a result I have become the first stop for many of my four children s friends who are in need of a letter of recommendation. A letter of recommendation should be one of the easiest pieces of correspondence to compose.
