    Don't know that it would do you much good.
    Many posters have had their application letters checked by colleagues & still aren't getting interviews. It's to do with supply & demand.

    I doubt if you can PM it - it has a very small limit on the words that you can enter in PM!
    And also - not a good idea.
    Application letters should be kept private, for fear of others being over-inspired by them. If the plagiarism software used now by many Local Authorities finds similarities in an application that you send in next month with one sent in next week by someone who saw your letter, YOUR application could be rejected.
    Plus . . . it's best nowadays not to have The Application Letter, but rather a different one for each school. (Although it will certainly have some similar or identical sections).
    Go and read the Welcome Thread. Many posters have found that this advice really works.
    read theo's advice and do the executive summary people, it really does work, seriously!!!!
    Dear Theo: Executive summary works- I have an interview
    The benefit of an executive summary
    Please take Theo's advice!
