Good/Neutral News
Correspondence
yEXAMPLE 1
yDear :
y

We have finally reviewed your application for graduate study at
Colorado State University. Due to the large number of applicants
this year, competition was very tough, but luckily, we have
recommended you for acceptance.

yAlso, to keep our students happy, we were fortunate enough to be

able to offer a teaching assistantship, whereby you would work
20 hours a week. This assistantship also comes with a non-
resident tuition waiver for the first year. If you don't do well,
though, we can not give you another assistantship.

yIt occurred to us that you probably don't have enough

information to make a sound decision. The enclosed
f lyer provides a detailed description of our Cognitive
Psychology Program, including the program of study,
degree requirements, mentorship program, faculty
research interests and laboratory facilities.

ySince other qualified students are on a waiting list for
admissions, please notify me in writing of your
decision to accept or reject admission as soon as
possible.
Discussion:
yExample one is problematic for several reasons. First,

the letter lacks important information, such as how
much the assistantship will be, when the deadline for
accepting is, and who to contact for further
information. Second, and probably most important,
although the letter is informing the reader of good
news, it lacks you-attitude and positive emphasis.
