Should I hand write or email these to the school? Also do I only write one letter per each person who interviewed me or should I send one to the dean as well?
A medical school admissions consultant (Suzanne Miller) with an MD from Harvard said to hand write all thank you notes so I would take her advice for whatever it's worth.Should I hand write or email these to the school? Also do I only write one letter per each person who interviewed me or should I send one to the dean as well?
So true...Dear Dr. X,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for taking the time to interview me. I feel so honored that Xcom made me fly across the country to visit a school in a world where things like virtual tours and skype exist. It was especially thoughtful to use the $50-$100 I spent on my secondary application to feed me a meal that costs $5. How generous! Following this, it was so informative to be given a tour of the facilities and be told basic information about the program that's available on the website. Never mind the fact that had I not known it before showing up, you would have considered me uninterested and instantly rejected me. The way you haphazardly skimmed my application for several seconds as I was sitting down really shows you care about me as an applicant! Finally, when I asked about important things like dedicated board prep time and clinical education you were so vague, non-specific, and baselessly positive. It really showed me that the only person who actually bothered preparing for the interview was me. Thanks for the stress-induced anger ulcer.
