The Fine Line Between Excited and Bragging.

I'd like to read (well, write) the copy of a letter I received in the mail today.

Dear Mr. Renaut:

Congratulations! We are thrilled to offer you a place in the Class of 2011 at Arizona State University's Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. Your application demonstrates that you will be a valuable addition to our academic community, and we look forward to your joining this select group of future attorneys.

There is a bunch of informative jargon that follows. But the key component of this letter is at the bottom, tucked neatly in to a corner of the paper's margin.

Handwritten in ink:


I applaud your commitment to maintaining the highest professional standards and representing the legal profession well. We would love to have you at ASU this fall. Phoenix is a great city for someone with your background in sports.

Shelli Soto
Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid

Out celebrating!
