When you apply to a graduate program, you may be asked to provide a letter
of intent. This document informs the admissions officers of who you are
as a person. Since it plays a crucial role in the decision to admit you
to the graduate program, you should make sure it is well-organized, well-written,
and grammatically correct. Structure your letter of intent like a formal
business letter, with your name, address, and phone number in the upper
As you’ll learn when you watch this video, you should also include
a subject line that identifies the document as a letter of intent. This
prevents the letter from being confused as a different part of your application
package for the college. When considering the content of your letter,
focus on what defines you as a unique individual and what you plan to
accomplish with your education.
