Step 5: Following Up
Write down your impressions of the school while they’re still fresh in your head. This information will become invaluable when you are deciding between competing acceptance offers later on, especially since it may have been a few months since you visited the school for your interview. Keep the information folder you no doubt received at the beginning of the interview day for future reference.
Send a Thank-You Card
This is not only polite, but it is also a good opportunity for you to remind them of your interest in the school and why you think you’d make a good addition to their student body. You should write a formal, general letter of thanks to the admissions director and a more specific, more personal note to your interviewers. The admissions office and interviewers do get a lot of these notes, so be concise and polite but try to reference the most memorable aspect of the conversation to jog their memory about you.
