Many recommend doing them together. I've done all separate. Out of 100 mails in the last 3 weeks, 2 interviews, 3 dings, 2 give us some time, and silence on the rest. FWIW.
when i mass mailed last year, i put my (very short) cover letter in the body of the email and then attached my resume and my transcript as two separate PDFs. I got two or three callbacks out of maybe 20 or 30 mass mails. I don't think you need to send a writing sample unless asked, and I think short cover letter in body of email is fine. I can post what my cover letter email said if you want to see an example.
If you could, please!
