Dear Theo: Executive Summaries

    Hi Theo,

    Just a quick question if that's ok. I'm going to put together an executive summary, as you've recommended, should this be part of the personal statement or on top of it?

    Thanks.

    For an effective application, you should send the following:
    • an application form with every bit filled in, no "See letter"
    • an application letter OR personal statement. Not both but certainly one of them.
    • a cover letter ONLY if you do a personal statement. See FAQs inside the Welcome thread
    • an Executive summary. If there's a space on the form, put it in there; if not, put it at the end of your letter so that it gets printed out automatically. The shortlisting clickables explain about this.
    So in answer to your specific question: do an application letter, and an executive summary too!
    Best wishes, and best of luck.
