Daisy Reeves Admissions Office Ely School of Business
City, State, Zip Code
Dear Ms. Reeves,
I am writing this school leave letter to inform all the proper parties that I need a semester away from my studies. That would be the coming Spring 2015 semester.
I am sorry to say my mother has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The doctors estimate that even with extensive treatment her life will only be extended no longer than eight months. With that in mind, my parents are both in agreement that after the first round of operations, regardless of my mother’s state, they are going to move to their summer cabin in Harrisburg.
I have decided to go with them. While I am dedicated to my studies and earning my degree in Business Management, there is no way I could focus on exams and internships knowing my mother’s condition. They have quite adamantly protested my decision. This is why we have come to the agreement that regardless of her eventual condition I will only miss a single semester.
This is not a decision I make lightly, but I do believe with my all my heart I am doing the right thing. So please expedite my leave and forward information I need to ensure I will still have all my financial aid when I return.
