The inquiry form will automatically indicate your Ventures Scholar status. As a scholar, you should include any information you wish to share with an admissions officer as long as it relates to your education, personality, or application status. There is no specific format since your inquiry will be added to an email template, which will include your name, email, phone, GPA, scores, and extra curricular activities and is sent directly to the Admissions Officer's email. Please be aware that the Officers have a great influence on who gets admitted. In admissions, the inquiry forms are used to evaluate which scholars are enthusiastic to attend their institution, which is very important in terms of retention rate.
Different ways you can use the inquiry form:
- to indicate your interest in the university
- to ask a question about a certain opportunity posted in their profile page
- to request more or specific information, or
- simply to (briefly) introduce yourself and your goals.
In addition to my previous post, since we are in mid-December scholars who have received an early decision acceptance letter or scholarship award may want to thank them for their acknowledgment and award (make sure to indicate the application status). Later on in the year you can send another inquiry to the institution you have decided to attend.
