Letter of Intent

There are many different reasons to provide a letter of intent. They are required for school applications, particularly graduate school, and other business, professional and personal purposes. This piece of any application can be one of the most important parts of the process. It allows the applicant to demonstrate personality as well as communication skills. A successful letter of intent will be informative, scholarly or professional, and persuasive. It is important to keep the end goal in mind, whether that is admission to school, a business partnership or favorable legal ruling.
