Admission Letter / December 5, 2018 / Clarissa Mendoza
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.
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.
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.
