    Post Could somebody check this email for me?

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    My name is Sofia Ost, a high school student from Amsterdam, my dream is to live in your country, the United States. I might be able to make that dream come true by going to college / a university there. I did a bunch of tests and did some research on the internet and it all comes to the conclusion that your university, University of California, Berkeley, would be the perfect fit for me. Anyhow, I am currently a 14 year old going to the ninth grade and I would like to inquire about what it takes for me to get into this school. For example: is it possible for me to get into Berkeley with a Dutch diploma or do I need an American high school diploma, meaning I should basically redo Junior and/or Senior year in order to graduate and use that diploma to try and get into your school.


    Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter my request. I look forward to receiving your response.
    Yours faithfully sincerely,
    Sofia Ost.

    Two things.

    I am more than 50% sure that you don't need an American high school diploma to get into college here, but it is good to ask.

    You don't need to thank people in advance.

    You may thank me now.



    (Keep up your grades!)

    A couple more things. When you say "cursive" I think you mean italics. (I forgot what the other thing was.)
