It should be short and soon after your interview. My wife suggested that I bring the notes and postage along so that I write em and mail em that day, which might have prevented my ... misplacing the names of my interviewers (thanks again for the names, by the way), since it would be fresh in the mind.Originally posted by jennij
Anyone have any thoughts on what to write in thank you letters to interviewers????? I am bad at this stuff.....
That's probably true. But the reason most people send thank you notes is because it's proper courtesy to do so. If it makes no difference in the chances for admission, fine.Originally posted by rpames
I actually asked a prof that does interviews at DMU about thank you notes. He rolled his eyes and said he was not a big fan of them. He said they make no difference on whether or not you get in. They make their decision on whether you get in or not 3 seconds after you leave the room. By the time they receive the thank you they have done a bunch more interviews and have forgotten all about you. There is no way they are going to call up admisions after they get the note and change a rejection to an acceptance.
Wish, could you elaborate on the 'letter of intent'? Just interviewed at AZCOM a week ago, and was told that the decision turn-around time is 3-4 weeks. Now, since their turnaround time is so short, would it be prudent for me to send a 'letter of intent' now?Originally posted by WishUponAStar
TWhen they begin discussing the application, you better believe that all of your letters of interest, thank you letters, and correspondance is taken into consideration.
