I am planning to reach out to a few of the firms I did not get screeners for. Is it necessary to write a formal cover letter or can I have a quasi-cover letter email that I'm sending out? Have any of you found that it matters?

Relaxed and conversational. Just standard questions - nothing shocking or particularly difficult.

If I sent my materials to Skadden early June, and they haven't rejected or confirmed anything, still hope? A lot of friends got rejection emails (see you at OCI), and I have been hearing about callbacks.

My guess is that they're busy getting things ready for OCI.
