    This came from my pre-med advisor:

    So, is this common practice, and what is an appropriate "token?"

    I think it depends on your relationship with the writer. I would love to give my lab PI a ceramic model of a sea urchin but I would stick to something more traditional for my organic professor. I'm waiting till after I finsh the entire application cycle though so they can be combined letter writing/I'm graduating thanks for everything gifts.

    Try searching, this has been covered before.

    Thank Yous after they write it, and then I'm thinking a nice card saying where you were accepted is cool. Updates to the profs when you get interviews. I think they just want to see us do well.

    If/When I get into ANY medical school, I will be purchasing bottles of some wine for my 4 LOR writers, my pre-med advisor, and i'm taking all my buddies out to the bar where drinks will be on me. You're all invited. Mark my word!

    I bought each of mine a book and wrote a message on the inside cover.

    I'll second Jackie's method (since it's pretty close to what I'm doing).

    While wine is nice, chocolate has a much more sense of ownage. :)
