Brain said:The interviewers usually fill out an evaluation of you very soon after you finished the interview so it probably doesn't make much of a difference. Some people think it's a polite thing to do, others think it's obviously sucking up. Personally, I never wrote any.
doc05 said:a thank you letter is senseless is nothing more than sucking up. If you've thanked your interviewer at the end of the interview, that is enough. But -- keep in mind that most pre-meds are tools who will do things like thank-you letters, etc.
so if you don't write one it may be conspicuously absent -- and that may hurt you (though it probably won't).
