stilted update letter?

<p>is it okay that my update letter isn't written beautifully?
it mentions why i still love their school, and updates them on accomplishments.
however, the accomplishments part seems kind of awkward. they're just one sentence, unrelated things.
it seems kind of choppy to me and i was wondering if this was okay?
is it also possible that i list my accomplishments in bullet point form instead?</p>

<p>thanks for the advice!</p>

<p>No, of course it's not okay. If you're serious about the school make it the best you can make it. You don't want regrets because you sent an awkward letter.</p>

<p>If you're going to send something that's poorly written, don't bother. Either send something good or nothing at all. You don't need to update schools; I didn't update any of the 9 I applied to but was accepted to 6 of them.</p>

<p>Why wouldn't you be able to bullet recent accomplishments? It seems the most logical way of doing it for me, and it's easier and quicker to read, which is always a plus in college admissions.</p>

<p>Okay...what's with all the attitude? Everyone just needs to chill out a little bit. I'm working on an update letter right now because a lot of good things have happened. If you want advice on formatting, take a look at this: </p>

<p>Hope this helps and good luck!</p>

<p>^thanks for your advice! i guess i'll be bullet pointing instead. :) i just wanted to make sure it was okay since it's technically not "formal"</p>

<p>but for any of you haters, i have to write an update letter because i got deferred to my top choice school. it's what you do when you're deferred.
and for the rest of you, try writing a paragraph about accomplishments. it's impossible to make it sound good and flow smoothly.
so just for the future, don't judge before you actually do it. it's a lot harder than it sounds.</p>
