What is the best way to send a letter of interest?

1. Typed by snail mail
2. Hand-written by snail mail
3. Typed by email
4. Hand-written by email

Thanks

P.S. Number 4 is a joke

I chose option #2 - I think it's most formal.

i did 3. and sent it in the body of the email, as well as an attachment that they could print and put in my file. who knows if it worked... i'm not endorsing this method, it's just what i did.

I'd go with braille...talk about getting noticed.



Seriously, contrary to previous folks I'd say definitely #1...but my penmanship looks like I write w/ my feet.

How do the schools contact you? Use the same method in return.
