Actually, I was asking as a prompt. What do you want to say? For sure, you want to convey acceptance of the offer. It would be polite to also express gratitude for the opportunity. But, perhaps, there's more you want to ask or say. Either way, the letter should be brief and to the point, so that there is no possibility of misunderstanding. Post a draft here and we can help you make sure of that.

I am confused. Is the university asking for a writing sample? Do they need a writing sample so that they know what courses to place you in? I see in your profile that you are from Mongolia. Is the university in Mongolia?

Or . . . do you want to write to the school accepting their offer of admission and you are looking for a sample of that kind of letter?

Of course, you did say this was your first letter of acceptance. That strongly implies that you applied to other universities, some of which may have been equally desirable to you, or less desirable, but more likely to offer you scholarships or other forms of financial aid. If so, and if you have not heard back from them yet, you may want to wait a bit before sending off a letter accepting the offer.

Thank you everyone for your consideration.

@Notoman:Yes I'm Mongolian.I just wanted to write this letter using some samples as my english is not good enough.

Thanks,Sean.Actually there is one more left,before that I had 2 rejections.But all of a sudden I've received this letter which made me really confident.

Ok.So this is my letter look likes.

"Dear madam,

I'm honored to hear that I've passed the screening committee meeting and I would like to thank all board members for letting me to have this scholarship. I'll make sure that you receive my verified diploma and transcript before I report to the university. I'm looking forward to see you at university in fall. Again thank you very much for your kind consideration.

Regards,"

I'll let other forum members have at your draft. I'll just note that you can find sample business letters all over the internet and that you should probably consult those to make sure that you format the letter itself correctly, in terms of addresses, date, salutations, and signature.

Here are a few minor grammatical changes:

I'm honored to hear that I've passed the screening committee meeting and I would like to thank all board members for letting awarding me to have this scholarship. I'll make sure that you receive my verified diploma and transcript before I report to the university. I'm looking forward to seeing you at university in fall. Again thank you very much for your kind consideration.

I haven't bothered altering the style, which shouldn't really as much of a concern as it would be if it were, say, an application essay.
Just DRAFT to help you.

Sir/Madam,

Subject: Re- OFFER AND ACCEPTANCE TO STUDY IN xxxxx -Reference xxxx dated xxx

Your letter quoted above refers.

I am very pleased to say "Thank you very much" to the University for offering me the place of study.

Further, I also wish to thank the Board Selection Committee particularly for approving the scholarship to enable me to pursue my education in the institution.

All the required certified true copies of documents including my Diploma Certificate and the transcripts will be forwarded to the University as soon as possible before the registration date.

I am looking forward to the study.

Once again, thank you very much.

Yours sincerely

xxxx

Your letter quoted above refers.

As Sean noted, this is an incomplete sentence. You've got a subject -- "letter" -- and a referential verb -- "refers" -- but no object to which the verb refers.

It should be, "Your letter above refers to xxxx."

But that doesn't make sense either, in the context, as a freestanding sentence, no matter what I put in for "xxxx."


Your letter above refers to me?
Your letter above refers to my application?
Your letter above refers to Mongolia?

I think you mean to say, "I write in reference to your letter above."
