I am writing this appeal letter on behalf of my daughter, who had applied in your institution but unfortunately got the rejection letter. I will not go on a tirade against the institution nor will I state that you have made a mistake because quite honestly it strains credulity that a high esteem institute like yours will choose average students over talented ones. But I will give one more chance to myself and my daughter to convince you that she deserves to get a place in the institute.
My daughter and I shared this collective dream of seeing her getting admitted in one of the best hi-tech institutions. She had put in a tremendous amount of time and effort in getting herself into a position to fight for this place. She is a tenacious and determined student; if she does not understand any subject or topic, she will spend hours to acquire the knowledge and assimilate concepts. She does have a habit of cramming her subjects but instead prefers to get the concepts. The cramming will only make you pass a test, but a concept can take you a long way forward. She has always been a consistent student, never got below par or substandard grades. One quality that I especially admire about her is that she does not compare herself with others, but instead she compares herself with the person she was yesterday and continuously try to grow as a person day in and day out. Apart from academics, she takes her extracurricular activities very seriously. Her particular interest is in softball. She has also been a member of student yearbook council.
There are some things in life that you have no control over and for my daughter and me, this is such a situation. I leave it to God and fate and to you guys to decide whether my daughter deserves a chance in your institute or not. All we can do is hope.
