    Default Is my letter already good enough? Give me some opinion please!

    My name is L. I am a student currently enroll in ABC university.

    With this letter, I would like to apply for the entrance of the ABC Programme at ABC University in 2008-2009. I would also kindly like to introduce myself for the candidacy opportunity to be nominated for ABC Scholarship Programme for the 2008-2009 academic year.

    I would like first to introduce briefly about myself. I was born in a family where my parents have strong belief that the most important thing their children should prepare themselves for a good future is education. I myself have been a person who likes to work with numbers since I started at school. I have always been motivated by my parents especially my father and I always try my best to be the best student. Therefore, I have always become an excellent and top student of school from primary school to university. I always feel that I am a high achiever with outstanding study and performance habits.

    I describe myself as a highly motivated, initiative, hard-working, and ambitious person. Furthermore, I am responsible and considerate. I am good at working individually and also working together in team. I easily adapt to new situations and make new friends. I am a person who always learns from my past mistakes and experiences more than anything else. That way, I rarely repeat my mistakes and I wish to become a better person closer toward my dreams and goals.

    During my study, I have gained a theoretical and practical background in electronic especially using microcontroller and digital circuits. I have built some devices such as electronic dice, digital counter, digital LED game using microcontroller, and digital clock with alarm. Therefore, I become familiar with circuit designing and programming. I am familiar with programming with Matlab, P-Spice, Assembly Language and also designing circuit using Protel. In my courses, there are always project presentations every semester. This helps me to be able to speak in front of people easily and clearly.

    Though I enjoy my courses, I always have the dream to be able to continue my study in electrical engineering abroad. I came to realize that my knowledge is still limited in many areas. But in my country, unfortunately, there are very few opportunities in this area, in which it is difficult to enhance my potential. Encouraged by the lecturers, I decided to apply for the ABC Scholarship Programme in the ABC.

    After a thorough search over the universities in the ABC, I decided to apply the admission at the ABC University. The very first reason I choose ABC University is because of its fascinating curriculum. I have read through the course descriptions which are offered and I believe that your top level program can benefit me in many areas.

    Meanwhile, located in ABC, a city of culture and high technology, the chance to study at ABC University would give me the opportunity to exchange information with other students from different cultures and nationalities. I can meet different kind of people that will give me different point of views, thus, contributing for my flexibility and creativity, besides the cultural and language gains.

    With high-quality instruction in multidisciplinary courses in combination with a good atmosphere, I am confident that I will have a pleasant stay as wonderful as it has been for previous participants. In addition, with my good skill in writing and speaking English, I will not have any difficulties in studying scientific subject in English.

    Finally, I would kindly like to indicate my request in order to be nominated for ABC Scholarship Programme. I need a scholarship mainly because the tuition fees are extremely high for a non-EU student. In fact, I can not afford to continue my study abroad with my financial condition. I sincerely hope that my personal qualities and educational experience will be sufficient for you to consider me as an appropriate match.

    Please find enclosed a completed application form with two passport-sized photographs, copies of my official transcripts and diplomas, and my curriculum vitae as per the requirements of application. Kindly contact me if you require any further details or documents.

    I thank you for the time you spend reading this letter. I hope to hear from you in the near future regarding the state of admission.

    Yours faithfully

    Could anyone give me a suggestion about the content of my letter?
    I actually really want to know more about the content rather than the grammar though.

    That is not good. Anybody who reads that might think you are confused.

    My parents strongly believed in education, and they inculcated that belief in their children. I have always done as well at my studies as I could, and I have always been a good student. (I am particularly good at math.) I am a high achiever with outstanding study and performance habits.
    (Say: "I was born into a family....")

    The original text is confusing and needs to be revised. Your ideas are good, but you express them poorly.

    You need to learn how to use fewer words to say what you want to say. Also, you need to learn where to make paragraphs.
