Dear Jeremy,

I am writing to advise you that due to your unsatisfactory performance in your Journalism courses this year you will not be permitted to register for any further courses in this department.

If you wish to continue in Journalism Studies, you will have to re-apply for admission for the 2006-2007 academic year.

Enn Raudsepp, PhD
Journalism Department
Concordia University

Dear Mr. Raudsepp,

Thank you for the prompt correspondence. I wonder if you could pass J-School while being homeless? It would be very interesting to see but I'm sure you'd give it the old college try.

I will take a year of History in the Fall, and if possible, I will re-apply for admission in 2006-2007 (if your department is willing to give me a second chance).

Cheers & Have a Great Summer.
Jeremy Brendan

Don,t worry Jeremy. You have time now to work out your master plan re the journalism career. If you want it bad enough, you will attain it . You know the recipe. So in 2 years I hope to see you back on track in journalism.
P.S. you are a super writer so dont give up your dreams
