Dear Dr. Junior,
I am a third-year undergraduate at Faith Hope Charity College. Dr. Sweater Vest is my Hebrew professor, and he encouraged me to contact you. I am planning to apply to MDiv programs next year, and I am interested in the program at HUSD. I would like to talk with you briefly about MDiv programs and about biblical studies at HUSD. Please let me know your availability. Thank you for your time.
