RootAnn Posted August 29, 2018 Share Posted August 29, 2018 DD#1 is not applying anywhere competitive admissions-wise. I have no doubt she'll get into the schools she's applying to via the Common App. Merit aid at one and how visits go at a couple of the others will likely swing her one way or another. That said, I'm pondering making my final version of her counselor letter a little less formal than the examples I've seen. I have an idea to write it with an underlying metaphor or simile running through the whole letter. (Not my example, but think of everything tying into what makes your favorite item of clothing your favorite - how it looks, how it feels, memories, etc.) I'll be honest that reading a bunch of kid's college essays made me look at my letter again & think that I could help the college admissions people tie her application, essay, and teacher recs together with this example that could be running through the letter because (I think) it fits her. Since I'm not likely to torpedo her chances to get in, is it okay to do? Or should I just keep the letter more 'just the facts, ma'am' (with appropriate enthusiasm & examples)? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
