Example of General Undergraduate Admission Letter
The most important elements that have encouraged my interest in my journey through the psychology program are all of my classes that I take. Every new psychology class I take ensures me that I am going in the correct direction
with my life. I have enjoyed learning things in all of my classes. Another element that keeps encouraging me in my interest is my father. He is in the process of getting his masters in counseling and I love being able to have conversations with him about issues that have come up in his and my classes.
Academically I want to accomplish my doctorate. I plan on graduating from Concordia and going to grad school. I am still not sure if I am going to take some time off before grad school. I do plan on going only for my masters at first then getting a job. After a couple of years I want to go back and get my doctorate. The one thing that I always want to do is to keep learning. Professionally I want to work with children and adolescents; I plan on being a counselor. I want to start my own practice or work with someone else in private practice.
One of my best personal strengths is being a social person. I love working with people and I am good at working with people. One of the reasons that I am good at working with people is because I am a very good listener and I am also very empathetic. I know how to read between the lines when people talk, and I really care what people have to say and what they are feeling.
The personal weakness that will be difficult is I am very emotional. I really feel for people when something bad has happened. I don’t know how to deal with it yet. It doesn’t even have to be anything that has happened to me. I see something sad on the T.V. or movie and I cry. If someone tells me a sad story and they are crying then I start to cry.
I have worked with kids all my life with babysitting, working in the nursery at my church and working as a nanny. I am currently in the process of applying to volunteer at Doernbecher children’s hospital. I have volunteered for years with habitat for humanity, paint the town, and mission work at my church, other then that I haven’t done much to help my in field of psychology.
