I had my interview the week before LSAT scores came out, so I sent one to update her on my score (we talked about it in the interview) and thank her. I really don't think it matters either way, though: like Strange said, they are undoubtedly swamped with paperwork and emails right now.
well, this was an off-campus interview. she's an alumnus of the school, a lawyer who interviews a few candidates a year. i don't mean to send the thank-you note as a way of boosting my chances of admittance, i just meant whether it would be rude not to.
I sent a handwritten note. Others here can speak to the wisdom or foolishness of this but in my work, I always remember when someone (client/vendor/etc) sends a note.
This is true, however I would caution against sending handwritten notes for decisions that will likely be made in a short period of time.
At my old job we usually made hiring recommendations the day of the interview or the day after, and the ultimate hiring decision would happen within a week. Whenever I received a hand written note it was frequently several days, to weeks after the decision had been made and communicated.
I think admissions decisions are sufficiently slow that hand written thank you notes are fine.
