HopefulFutureSLP2016 Posted November 6, 2015 Share Posted November 6, 2015 Okay, so I've been starting to write my letters of intent for my grad school applications and I find myself sort of stuck on what to write about. Some of the schools were easier and gave me a specific prompt and questions to go off of, whereas others just sort of say "insert letter of intent and/or purpose here". What is something appropriate to write about, exactly? I know to write about all of my accomplishments/honors/awards/experience/volunteer work/etc..but what specific "tone" should I give off? While writing, I find myself starting to sound like I'm basically begging for a chance (since my stats are so low) and giving excuses as to why my stats are so low. I don't want to come off as if I'm begging for them to let me in or sound whiney or that I'm just making excuses for myself or that I'm trying to make them pity me, lol. I also don't want to sound like I'm bragging about things that I've done and why I feel that they should let me in. I also talk a lot about how passionate I am for the field but I feel as though it sounds kind of "mushy" or made up (even though really it's not, I do really love this field!) UGH idk, someone please help! lol Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
