Cover Letter For Doctoral Program

Dear all,

I am applying for a PhD program in Business Administration. Despite it requires a statement of purpose in separate file, I still want to make a cover letter to summarize who I am, what I apply for, and all supplemental materials enclosed with the application package. Could you please review it and let me know how to improve it?

Thank you very much for your kindness,

I graduated with a Master's degree in Business Administration from University of YYY and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from University of ZZZ. I have six years of experience in Information Security in both hands-on and managerial position. I also possess several professional certificates such as CompTIA Security+ and Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP).

It's pretty solid, but I would recommend perhaps making it longer and a little more descriptive. I also noticed that almost all of your sentences start with the word "I". Although it does make sense to focus the letter on your personal skills and abilities, I believe that the flow of your letter may be improved if you vary the words you use to start your sentences.

Dear Director of the Doctoral Program, I might be wrong, but I would suggest addressing it directly to the Director if you know him/her name, i.e., "Director *name here*:"

I think the first paragraph is incomplete. In addition to stating your intention, you should give a sentence that expressed the main idea of the essay. The essay needs to have one unique idea, a theme that distinguishes it from the rest. This is not easy if you have not put enough thought into your plan for the future, but anyone who develops their plan will have a theme that is very unique, because you'll have a niche plan, a detailed plan, that reflects your unique interests and talents.

The whole essay does nothing but mention the experience that is already evident in your resume or transcript. The essay is not unique enough. In addition to this experience, you need a detailed plan, a specific plan. Think about what you want to do, and tell the reader why this program is better for you than other, similar programs. You should dig deep and really appeal to the reader on a personal level. Think about how you would talk to your mom or your friend about the school. What really makes this school best? Be a little personal, and you'll win the reader's heart.

Dear EF_Kevin,

Thank you for your suggestion.

However, this is only a cover letter that intend to describe roughly who I am and summarize all supplemental material attached with the application package. I do write a Statement of Purpose that is more detail and unique in a separate document.

Best Regards,



Sample Cover Letters for Graudate School Admittance

Dear Graduate Coordinator (get the name so you can make the letter more direct),

I am very interested in pursuing a masters degree at the University of UNIVERSITY NAME in Cardiac Rehabilitation (or the area you are interested in). From my review of graduate programs, and discussion with other professionals, it is very evident that the University of UNIVERSITY NAME Exercise Science Program has an excellent Cardiac Rehabilitation program.

I am completing a very comprehensive Undergraduate Program in Exercise Science at the University of New Mexico. As you can see by my resume, this program has prepared me well for the graduate education challenges I now wish to pursue. I hope that the skills and knowledge I obtain from this graduate degree will give me the opportunity to seek a challenging opportunity within a dynamic rehabilitation setting.

I have enclosed all materials required for acceptance into the masters program. Thank you very much for your consideration of my application.

Very truly yours,


Your Name

Dear Ms. Dieruf,

I am very interested in the physical therapy program at the University of New Mexico. I volunteered over 220 hours at the Veterans Administration Hospital (2001- 2002), which gave me the opportunity to experience and enjoy several different aspects of the physical therapy field. I am currently completing my undergraduate degree in exercise science, which I feel will enhance my abilities as a therapist.

My volunteer background has included the following: wound care, rehabilitation exercise programs, and spinal cord injury and mobility impaired patients in the therapy pool. I also gained experience in patient rehabilitation in the areas of knee and hip replacement surgery.

My bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science has provided me with the knowledge of exercise testing, EKG interpretation, fitness assessment and prescription, anatomy, and kinesiology. I have also taken courses that involved special populations, such as people with disabilities and the elderly.

The UNM physical therapy program came highly recommended by graduate students and physical therapists that I have talked with, and that the curriculum is outstanding. Through my research on deciding which school to attend I found that the New Mexico School of Medicine is one of the top in the nation. I would be proud to be a student in the UNM physical therapy program.

Through my volunteer work at the VA Hospital I have developed a compassionate approach and commitment to assisting people with medical and physical disabilities I would enjoy becoming a physical therapy student and look forward to speaking with you in the near future. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Lynette Ewer
