Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Heidi Wallace
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.
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.
You are usually asked to author this by someone that you know well either from your business or personal circles. Having direct knowledge about the subject of your letter should make it easy to expound on their character strengths personal attributes and accomplishments. In spite of this it may still be an overwhelming prospect for many. So how to start... As I just mentioned get additional information from the person. You may know them personally as they hang out at your house but find out what their other outside interests and accomplishments have been. Make sure you know the specifics of what is being asked for in the letter.
