Admission Letter / December 7, 2018 / Gina Pennington
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.
What if You Deny Something You Should Have Admitted? There is a possible "sanction" for wrongly denying an admission requested of you. And that is that the court could require you to pay the other side s attorneys fees for the time spent trying to prove something that was sufficiently obvious that you should have admitted. I am not personally aware of any court under any circumstances that has awarded that sanction to anybody. I am sure it has happened but is it a significant risk? You decide. Most lawyers I know find some reason-just about any reason-to object to or deny them all.
Give them one good reason why you are considering going to college there. All you need is just a basic letter. An example of one can be found below. The name and address of the college you want to apply to as well as the name of the dean of admissions at the top of the letter goes here. Dear ABC college... I am a senior at XYZ high school in city state. I would like to obtain some information on different colleges that I may choose to attend after graduation. Because ABC college offers electrical engineering I am considering enrolling at your school because I am interested in the subject.
