Thank you for your interest in pursuing your PhD degree with me. Unfortunately, the large number of such emails often prevents me from reading them all. To streamline this process, I request you to please fill out this table and insert it into your email body (not as attachment). Additionally, you can attach your CV and supplementary materials such as transcripts, publications (if any), etc.
I believe using that table could actually make your job of writing a cover letter easier. :)
