I agree with FloridaMadame. This is not sucking up. When you are shadowing with a physician, you are imposing on the time of a busy professional. Same with professors you may ask to send multiple letters of recommendation. A little something to say "thanks" is not out of line.FloridaMadame said:Sucking up is when you are trying to get something out of someone. A box of chocolate or a bottle of wine AFTER the fact is not a suck up. It's a very nice thank you.
