Addendum to entry-level advice
Many candidates these days send out emails/packets directly to schools of interest to them as well as using AALS. That's fine and can pay off, but if you do it electronically, please name your files appropriately. I like you better when I can just save the file lastname_resume.doc, or FIRSTNAME LASTNAME resume.pdf or any other choice that makes sense than when I have to remember to manually rename your resume.docx file to match your name, which I might even misspell! I think you can do the same thing with the AALS resume system too.
