Dear Name of Admission Officer:

This letter is a formal request for you to reconsider my application to [Name of College]. 

My application was declined on [DATE], and the reason given was that my SAT scores were lower than what is required by the college for admission.

The scores I included in my application were from [DATE]. At that time, my father died, and my mother required support and help to get her life back on track.

Since I am their only child, I needed to help her at that time and was unable to study properly for the SAT exams.

I knew that my scores were too low, which is why I retook the exam on [DATE]. I was able to study well and improved both of my scores.

My writing section improved from 570 to 750, and the quantitative score improved from 550 to 720.

I have understood that my new scores are above the required score for admission. It is my wish to join [Name of College] because you offer the best program for [Environmental Applications], which is my chosen field of study.

Based on these higher scores, and because the lower scores were due to circumstances beyond my control, I am requesting you to reconsider your previous decision to decline my admission and grant me admission for the next semester.

If you have any questions or would like any more information, I can be reached at [555-123-4567] or at [name@email.com]. Thank you for your kind consideration of my application.

Sincerely,

Your Signature
