Deferred Question
Answered

Hi, so I'm planning to write a letter of continued interest for some schools but the thing is my grade for the first semester of senior year got worse. Some of it was a mistake and my teachers won't change it. I shouldn't include my grades in the letter, right? And I should just talk about other stuff? What should I do?

Thank you

The additional details were helpful, so Ivy provided more specific information based on your situation:

If your friend (you) believes there were mistakes in their grades and the teachers were unwilling to correct them, it might be best to focus on other positive updates and aspects of their application in the Letter of Continued Interest. While it's important to be honest, dwelling on a negative situation may not be as productive.

Encourage your friend to highlight any recent accomplishments, positive updates, or specific reasons for their continued interest in the college. This can help shift the focus away from the grade issue and demonstrate their enthusiasm for the college."

Hope this helps you! Wish you the best! LMK if you have more questions.
