Hi! I got deferred from a lot of schools actually and I was wondering how I used write my letter.
Some schools include a form on their portal. Should I write there as well as email it to admissions officers or just fill out the form. Also, can someone send a sample one maybe? How would you start it off, what are some things to include, etc
I used Ivy assistant to create a sample for you:
