Is it okay to say that my team "made it" to the finals in a formal letter? If not what else can I say?

  • That's pretty standard language so I would think it would be OK. How formal is the letter? – Andy Schweig Mar 13 '16 at 20:17
  • I'm listing my achievements to a university I'm applying to. – test Mar 13 '16 at 20:19
  • 'enter final' sounds more formal to me, and is more widely used. – MAKZ Mar 13 '16 at 20:21

    How about "reached" instead of "made it to"? – Andy Schweig Mar 13 '16 at 20:22
  • @AndySchweig I think that was what I was looking for, could you write an answer. – test Mar 13 '16 at 20:23

"My team reached the finals" is probably a little more formal than "My team made it to the finals."
