An admission appeal letter could be sent by a student who was rejected from being accepted at his preferred learning institution or who was late in responding to the offer of acceptance as required by the learning institution. The sender must state his reason of appeal clearly and convincingly to warrant a reconsideration by the Admission Office of the learning institution.

RE: Admission Appeal
I am writing to appeal against the decline of my application to your esteemed university of which I had applied for a Business course for this fall semester.
There was a bad and long postal strike in my county in the months of July and August 2010. Hence, I was not able to receive the good news of my acceptance to your esteemed university until yesterday. I have cut out the newspaper article on the postal strike for your reference. The response date of August 30 has just passed. I am appealing against this penalty which is of no fault of mine.
It has been my long time ambition to study at, and graduate from, New York University. I do hope that you will reconsider my appeal to be still accepted for the Business course at your New York University.
I look forward to a favorable reply from you soon. I will be able to make it for orientation week on September 10, 2010.
