I sent mine in the body and it was received well. I also kept it to the point (3 paragraphs). I figured that noone would want to read another long set of reason of why I want to go to law school.

Hehe... Insomnia is a beautiful thing. And think, in 8 more hours, I'll be at work getting paid to do this  ;D

Definitely in the body. I think that most schools won't even download any attachments that you send to them for fear of viruses.

That's another good point but I think a better one is laziness and apathy. Why take the time to double click and print?

Print it out and mail it post.

E-mail I think appears too lazy.

My thinking of going the email route is that given the current date, we can't rely on mail to get there in time to make a difference. After a lot of thought I decided to email. I don't think this appears lazy and I did get a response from the admin director.

NJLawGuy, I was going to send an e-mail out to Rutgers tonight. Which e-mail address did you send yours to.

I sent one of my letters via email (at their suggestion), and then I sent a second one via Priority Mail.  Thought it couldn't hurt to stick out with one of those big cardbord envelopes...
