QUESTION
What information should be included in an lette,r going to a college, asking for information on the college.?
Like well, I’m a junior and want to know what should I include in an essay that I want to send off to a college. I want them to know that I am interested in them etc.

ANSWER
When you write a letter for information from a college, you do not need to write an essay. The letter will be seen only by a clerk. You will need to write an essay when you apply to the college.

The letter for information should include your name, address, and telephone number. Be sure to request an application and a catalog. You may wish to mention the major you are interested in and ask for additional information about that major.

When you submit your application for admission, most colleges will ask you to write an essay and will often designate the subject of the essay.
