Hey all,


Quick question...

If not explicitly stated, is it okay to send cover letters and resume as a PDF file?

Thanks!

Yes, but if you're emailing a person I'd make the cover letter the text of the email.

I hope the OP isn't sending a resume/cover letter to an adcom. He wants to go to med school, not work for admissions, right? :)

i assumed they were sending it for a job or maybe as background info for a recommender (though you wouldn't need a cover letter for that).

Yeah, I'm just forwarding some info to my LOR writers.

Thanks for the heads up!
