Petition for Reinstatement When I received my admission letter from Michigan State University, I started shivering as my palms were dripping sweat. The nervousness I had was extremely high, and my state of mind was like a brand new soccer ball getting kicked on the soccer field; as this letter will determine my future. My mother and I opened the letter together as we took a deep breath and hoped that this was nothing but great news.
