Attn: Admissions Department

Dear Admissions Department,

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 work. 

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.
