Dear Eller College Admitting Committee:

My name is ________ and I would like to express my sincere interest in becoming a finance major in the Eller College of Management for Fall 2015.

After a thorough self-assessment, I firmly believe that my involvement in various student organizations has helped me develop proficiencies that coincide directly with the primary principles of an Eller finance student, including a diverse set of analytical and decision making skills. In addition, I have a strong desire to strengthen my interviewing, public speaking, and relational skills; I look forward to learning from my other classmates and professors throughout my time in Eller.

From the positions I held, I have gained organizational skills and practiced effective communication through team-oriented efforts. As a sale associate at Pretty Please Boutique, I was responsible for balancing multiple events, customers, and deadlines while working in a fast-paced, high-energy environment. I developed proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite putting together employee schedules, local advertisements, and orderly inventory logs. In addition, I gained creativity by designing the store’s first website as a part of a larger responsibility to help this newly established company create lasting brand loyalty While just beginning the pledging process in Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity, I have already learned the value of efficient time management, something that is essential for success in Eller.

Given the opportunity, I know I can excel in the hardworking culture at the college, as this culture mirrors that of my current activities and present ambition.
