In my class today, I was given a deadline of two weeks to write a letter to the editor of the university. This is one of my favorite way to give your writing and communication deadlines your “year off.” As you may have noticed, I have to go through every deadline to get a letter out to the editor. Once I was handed a deadline notice, I didn’t know what I was going to do.
I was like, “What!? Why is a letter to the editor this important?” But I really did have nothing to do with it. I was just curious what was going to happen. I was like, “Oh, okay. Well, then I guess I’ll just tell them that I’m writing this.” (I am a terrible letter writer, but I’m also a terrible editor.) As it turned out, I actually got the editor to approve my letter.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into. For one, the letters to the editor were very vague and lacked any detail. I did my research and I discovered that I would be writing to the editors about myself. The editors wanted to see my background and my experience, so I gave them my best information. I also realized that I might actually be a bit of a failure for writing a letter to the editor. I didnt know that at first.
I thought this was a good point. It’s not. It’s a bad point about writing a letter to the editor. I don’t believe that’s possible.
Well, if you think about it, a letter to the editor can be just that – a letter to the editor. It is not the place for full, honest, and complete information. This is why you need to do your research before writing your letter. If you do not know what to say, it will not be effective and you will not be able to convey your sincerity and enthusiasm to the editor.
When the deadline to apply to a university opens, everyone seems to be a little more concerned about the time period, but that is of course not true. The truth is that most university applicants are not thinking about the application deadline. They are thinking, “Will I get in?”, “Will I get in?”, “Will I get in?”.
I’ve been at this for a year now and I’m about to start writing my next letter. I’m a bit of a loner, but I’m not going to say that I’m a loner. Why is that? Because it’s not like I’m writing my own letter every day on my computer, or writing a letter every day on my phone in the morning or my house phone in the evening.
Because I don’t have a computer. Because I dont have a phone. Because I dont have a house. Because I dont even have a body.
If you’re not sure whether you’re going to get in to Syracuse University, think about where you’re going to be in the future. How many years are you going to be at Syracuse? What is your major? How much time are you going to have at Syracuse? What are you going to be doing in the future? How much money are you going to have? If you have to ask yourself this question, you’re probably taking a lot of chances.
We’re almost there. We don’t have any more time to ponder this. It’s not like we’re being chased by a team of cops… They don’t know anything about what we’re doing, and they’re not going to know anything anyway. We should stop.
