Email Etiquette With Admissions People (Subtitled: Don’t Ask Questions About Another School)
Hello [REDACTED], and thank you for your email!
While I can certainly appreciate your interest in Pitt, as it is one of Pennsylvania’s fantastic state-related institutions of higher education, you have sent this email message to Penn State.
As it happens, I do specialize in assisting transfer students with the processing of their application for admission (to Penn State), and the evaluation of their transferable credit. However, it is extremely difficult for me to assess how a different institution might evaluate your transfer credits from [REDACTED] Community College.
If you transfer to Pitt and find that you are unhappy there, please feel free to reach out if you become interested in Penn State. We actually have three campuses near Pittsburgh!
PS: Pittsburgh is a fantastic city. Be sure to check out the South Side. My band used to play on Wednesday nights at Nick’s Fat City (which is now apparently the “Diesel” club and restaurant). Also check out Carson Street Deli, which is home to an excellent Italian sub.
I’m beaming. No comment needed. Although, if I were to add a comment, it would be “I’m pretty friggin’ good at my job.” #NotSoHumbleBrag
Mmm. Yes, indeed.
