    Question The sample letters

    I'm confused and I need to hear your thoughts about this.

    I'm applying to college, in UK actually.
    So many requirements including personal statement, CV and other things.
    I need this this to be done professionally and very well, I used my own common sense and some sample letters which are really fascinating but I'm not sure about many things.
    For example when I include data like the courses I have taken and my marks on a separate paper like my transcript, why should I include such data again in the dean's letter of recommendation?
    I'm afraid if I don't follow the rules of writing these letters, my application won't be dealt with.


    Any advice?

    The Dean's letter is a formal reference that confirms that the applicant genuinely has these qualifications- it's like a guarantee.

    And the answer to the question Why should I...? is simple- if you don't, you may not get the place you want. The time to question a university is not before you have arrived.

    Thank you, I think it's time to listen the sound of logic not to myself!

    Yes- academic details can seem petty, but dance their dance at least until they accept you.
