Admission Letter / December 8, 2018 / Nanette Watson
One of the ways in which you can attract the attention of the admissions board is through opening your statement with an interesting hook that will attract the reader s attention. For example you may have been asked to write a personal statement that outlines how you are a good communicator. If you introduce the topic with a statement such as "When it comes to strong communication I have a secret skill. I have a special ability that not many people have is rarely recognized but is always appreciated..." This is much more effective than "I am a good communicator because of the following..." and will make the reader want to read on.
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.
