This seems like silly logic to me - I thank them at the interview, and show my appreciation by responding to their requests for additional interviews and later, if they were to offer me, accepting their offer. What does a thank you note add to that? Not trying to be a dick, but I'm just thinking from the attorneys' positions... Why would I want to receive a thank you note after an interview?
dude, no... in this profession, and especially in this economic climate, you need to write the thank you letter.
most likely, everyone else that interviewed wrote them one. don't be the lone guy that stood out for not writing one.
at least send a generic thank you email.
congrats on your interviews again, btw, and good luck man!
This is what bothers me... A generic one, IMO, stands out as a hollow, desperate "don't forget about me."

This is the only logical reason to send one, IMO, but most people at my school don't.
Different schools of though, I guess. I send thank you notes to attorneys who introduce me to other attorneys, who put in a good word for me, who meet with me to chat about the profession/job market, etc. But interviews are as much for the firm as they are for the interviewee, so it just seems weird and fake to me.
