• Find out who, exactly, you should address the letter to. Always address it to a specific individual, such as "Dr. Doe" or "Admissions Director" rather than "To Whom it May Concern" or "Dear Sir or Madam."
• Don't regurgitate information from your resume or application. Instead, expand on those points to illustrate how they make you a good candidate for the internship in question.
• Limit your letter to a single page with three to four paragraphs: introduction, 1-2 body paragraphs, and a closing paragraph.
• Always proofread for grammar, typos, and spelling errors.
