Admission letter

  1. Oct 10, 2004 #1
    Arrrgghh! Why is writing an admission cover letter so hard :frown:

    It feels like the fate of my acceptance is being written as i write the stupid thing.


    Have you guys ever faced this?

    No, none of us ever went to college.

    I haven't (yet). I should be writing one of those in a couple of months.

    I never had to write a letter or essay. Just an application and transcript, if I recall.

    I only have written formal english letters in english language exams. By the way, I always make it HORRIBLE. :frown:

    Don't you also have to write an essay or a Statement of Purpose ? Or is that what you're talking about ?

    I think the only reason I got accepted into Grad School was because I wrote a very "clever" SoP, heh heh. :rolleyes:

    Its actually not that bad guys. Just write down why you really want to go to college. Try to write your own answer, not "because I want a good job". They are looking for something that makes you unique.

    Not just why you want to go to college, but why you want to go to THEIR college. :wink: That is, if you're writing to a specific school.
