Hi! I'm writing a motivation letter for a Master Program. This is what I would say in French to end my letter: En espérant que ma candidature retiendra votre attention, je vous prie d'agréer, Monsieur, mes sincères salutations. Would it be correct to say it so in English: I hope my application will retain your attention. Yours sincerely, (It's so much more direct I fear it's not polite enough.) Thank you for your help!
