    Hi,

    I was wondering what you guys thought was the
    proper way to give thank you cards after the
    interview? Do you guys think it's best to
    give them to admissions, interviewer, etc?
    How about "thank you" e-mails if they give you
    their business card? That's what I did with
    one of my Cornell interviewers.

    Most of the schools that I interviewed at suggested to just send them to the admissions office and they could get them to your interviewers. UCSF requires you to do it that way, if you send Thank you's at all (which they say is not necessary).

    The school I interviewed at a couple of weeks ago specifically said not to address the note to any members of the panel that interviewed us. They said to write a letter to the admissions committee as a whole. I don't know why but I guess they don't want any personal contact between the applicants and the people that interviewed us.

    i was told to mail a letter to the interviewer c/o admissions office. Some admissions offices put a copy of the letter into your file. the most important thing is not to make mistakes on the admissions letter, it could hurt you. think of it as a mini-essay you submit to the school.
