Well I managed to scrounge up a nice $1500/year scholarship and now I’ve got to write a letter. I already pretty much know what to say, so I really only have one question: should I write it out longhand or is it acceptable to type it? I really like the idea of a the personal touch of a handwritten note (this is to a single individual) but I’ve got, uh, questionable handwriting. I’m sure I could make it mostly legible if I dedicated an hour or so to it.
So Dopers, should I take my time to carefully write it out longhand or should I type it out? Also, if longhand, should I send a card or a just a letter? What would you prefer to receive from a scholarship recipient if you were a donor?
