Dear Name of Head of Admissions:
After doing much research about colleges in the area that have a Psychology program, I am
applying to Ohio State University because of the outstanding reputation and the exceptional
reviews that I have read from other recent graduates. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about
Psychology program at the Ohio State University because of the graduate psychology programs
that are offered.
Currently, I am just beginning my journey and ready to dive into the undergraduate studies
program. My ultimate goal is to finish the Psychology program at Ohio State University. Once I
have completed my undergraduate in psychology, my desire is to continue my studies and enter
the graduate program for psychology where I may be a counselor dealing with children. I am
sure this is the correct career path, as I grew up in a family where my father was a counselor
and my mother a social worker. My father is a graduate of the Ohio State University, and my
mother a graduate of OU University. Considering both of my parents have similar career paths, I
feel like I would be honoring them and their dedication to helping others by entering this field of
Pursuing a psychology major is my long-term goal, and I would like to start by earning my
Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Ohio State University. I have attached my application, as
well as transcripts, an essay, and all of my letters of recommendation as defined in my
admissions packet. I appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to hearing from
you soon.
