Letter of Intent Graduate School, Sample & Format
A student or a working individual who wishes to further his studies submits a Letter of Intent Graduate School. The person writes into his preferred place of learning to request a favorable consideration of her/his intention to further her/his studies in graduate school at the preferred location of study. It is primarily an application for admission to the institution. The applicant writes about their interest in pursuing a degree in the intended institution and their reason for the same. They also need to write about why they have chosen that particular amongst others.
A few things need to be kept in mind while writing such an application. Make sure the tone of the letter is polite, and the language is formal. There is no scope for grammatical, structural or spelling mistakes as it would reflect badly on the applicant. Do your homework about the institution and write your reason for choosing them. Also, mention what the organization will gain by having you as their student. In the end, show anticipation for a positive response and pay regards and display gratitude.

RE: Letter of Intent for Graduate School
Dear Ma’am/ Sir,
I beg to state that I am currently working as a legal assistant in an established law firm in Detroit. Having been exposed to the many intriguing legal cases at work, I am highly intrigued to be more involved in this field. Hence, I am writing to state my intention to further my studies at your prestigious law school in Detroit. Many of my esteemed seniors at work highly recommend your graduate law school. I was a business degree graduate from New York University with four years of legal experience after two years of small business exposure in the retail industry.
I am a hard worker and consistent performer with the strong attitude for putting in a diligent effort. I am also a state-level basketball player and am the recipient of a scholarship fo the same. I am devoted to the field of legal studies and only seek an opportunity to prove my passion for the field. If selected, I promise to provide my best of efforts, dedicated attention, and performance to the best of my ability. I have studied the history of your prestigious institution and heard its praise from my coworkers and look forward to the opportunity to make it my alma mater.
I would be delighted if you can offer me a placement in your law program at the next intake.
