    Red face about "dare"

    Dear sir
    I would like to know if the sentence is correct or not althought I have checked in the dictionary.
    "Owing to the enormous nurse demand, dare I say it that may I have a chance to study Nursing in your school"

    I want a formal expression to show I want to study in that school.
    So is it ok to use "dare" in this case.
    Thank you~

    Re: about "dare"

    No, it is not appropriate to use the word.

    I understand there is a great demand for/acute shortage of nurses at the moment. It is my fervent hope to be given an opportunity to study nursing in you School.

    not a teacher
