Writing a Letter of Continued Interest

Writing a Letter of Continued Interest


Deferred from your top choice? Don't give up! Each year, many deferred applicants are accepted to their dream university within the regular decision pool—and many more deferred applicants are ultimately denied. What leads some students to be accepted and some denied? Overwhelmingly, the determining factor is a carefully crafted letter of continued interest.

​Now is your chance to demonstrate how you would add value to their institution, to show how you embody the university’s values (known in admissions lingo as “fit”), and to prove your knowledge of the university’s unique offerings and how they align with your own interests.

In my experience VERY few applicants who do nothing but wait are accepted within the regular decision pool. Don't wait in radio silence—use this admissions guide to send the perfect letter of continued interest.
